The summit of Culebra Peak was considered the “start” of the route and the summit of Longs Peak the “finish”. The trip was about 1,300 miles with a total elevation gain close to 300,000 feet. The route included stretches of the Colorado and Continental Divide Trails, some segments were along state highway corridors, there were many cross country legs and high traverses, as well as hundreds of miles of Forest Service trails and old roads.
Click on the map below to download the .kmz file to view in google earth. The path is not entirely accurate due to the mapping software that the file was created with. Two examples: the path from Snowmass to Aspen is shown to be along the road, in fact we hiked the Government Trail during that stretch; along Dillon Reservoir we walked the multi use path, not the road as the .kmz file would indicate. The file CAN be used to do a flyover and view our SPOT checkins. THE FILE IS NOT INTENDED FOR NAVIGATION.
