The Collegiate Loop

The loop is part of the Colorado Trail, around the Collegiate Peaks in the Rockies. The best starting point for any description is the website of the Colorado Trail Foundation. It is approximately 160 miles with over 37,000 ft. in elevation change, and is divided into the East side (Collegiate East or CE), and the West side (Collegiate West or CW), which shares the trail with the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) which stretches from the Mexican border to the Canadian border.

Samuel and I completed the Collegiate Loop in July 2021. We had been looking for the next progressive “challenge”, and this was perfect. Read the links below for our story.
