    Hike from one end of the Colorado wilderness to the other. The Kenosha Pass to Georgia Pass via the Colorado Trail is an epic adventure across several quintessential landscapes up to the famous Continental Divide. Reserved for experienced hikers with stamina, this trail is highly demanding. Make sure you pack some sunblock and wear layers because much of this trek is exposed. Additionally, don’t forget to drop off a car at Georgia Pass or arrange a pickup on the other side! The last thing you will want to do after a long day of hiking is figure out transportation. The Kenosha Pass to Georgia Pass via the Colorado Trail will guide you through woodlands, along streams, past lakes and across meadows. With new scenery to admire every step of the way, this path has it all.

    When you are geared up and ready to roll, depart from the Kenosha Pass Campground. From the campground, track northwest along the Colorado Trail. Hike along the path and ignore intersecting trails. Eventually, you will trek along the base of Jefferson Hill. Admire the peak and continue northwest. Soon you will cross Forest Road 37 before reconnecting with the Colorado Trail. Pass the several dispersed campsites that line the path and continue hiking.
