Colorado Trail #2108
Two sections of the Colorado Trail that run through the Holy Cross Ranger District. They can both be started at Camp Hale. The Tennessee Pass section travels 6.5 miles over gentle terrain and forest roads to Tennessee Pass. The Kokomo Pass section climbs more steeply, first up an old rocky logging road through a steep canyon, passes an old sawmill site, and then up singletrack to alpine meadows and Kokomo Pass.
