Have a great ride. Please don't ride down the steep tundra hillside from mile 8.2 to mile 8.5. (red on the map) It was a struggle getting this segment ok'd for bikes, and we could lose the privilege at the blink of an eye. (or the drag of a tire)
The waypoints on the map correspond to those at: http://www.bearcreeksurvey.com/Reroutes.htm They correspond with the ones in the Map Book available from the Colorado Trail Foundation. http://www.coloradotrail.org The waypoints are in gps loadable format and cost $11. The money is used to support this website you are visiting now.
Finally, the continental divide is red on the maps. That IS NOT THE TRAIL! The trail is blue. The mapped portion begins 5 miles past Carson Saddle. The route before that follows the dotted CDTA line on the map.
