The Colorado Trail: North Cottonwood Creek to Chalk Creek Trailhead is a 22.8 mile point-to-point trail located near Buena Vista, CO. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from June until November.
I hiked a portion of this trail in early October. It's a great trail to enjoy the fall foliage. Near the beginning of the trail I saw a small body of water with what appeared to be a beaver dam in the center. Then I saw two moose emerge and drink from the water! I thoroughly enjoyed this hike although I wasn't able to complete it due to time constraints.
