Colorado Trail Section #6 Trailhead

Section #6 Trailhead is one of the more popular segments of the 500 mile Colorado Trail. At 32.6 miles one way, this is the longest trail on this list; however, many people hike back a few miles to see some of the best views for fall colors in the state. If you are looking for a good shorter backpacking trip, this is section is sure to delight you, providing great views into the South Park Valley below.

Parking fills up quickly on the weekends, so be sure to get here early. After the hike, drive the rest of Kenosha pass to get more fall color views. Head up into the Lost Creek area or drive down to Alma and up to Kite Lake.
