Hiking The Colorado Trail - Angel-of-Shavano

The 3rd most popular hiking trail in Colorado.

West of Salida and Buena Vista, a great section of the Colorado Trail runs 20 miles from CR240 north towards SR306. Starting near NFS Angel-of-Shavano CG, the CT climbs north on narrow trail and eventually crests before dropping in near Rasberry Gulch (8 mi.). Over the next several miles through Ponderosa pine and scrub oak, the CT drops 1000 feet to the Chalk Creek and eventually passes the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs on CR162. The hiking trail heads north on CR322 before becoming singletrack again on the seven mile stretch to SR306.

Overall, Colorado Trail - Angel-of-Shavano is the 3rd most popular hiking trail of all 72 hikes in Colorado.
