Golden, Colorado - The Continental Divide Trail Coalition (CDTC), the lead National Partner for management of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT) has launched a new Fundraising campaign through Indiegogo titled “The Next 32 Miles” to raise funds to construct a 32 mile non-motorized section of the CDT on the Rio Grande National Forest near Saguache, CO.
“The Next 32 Miles” launched on November 18 and has raised over $10000 in the first 48 hours of the effort. The Campaign will run through January 2, 2015 and can be found at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-next-32-miles
This project would allow the CDTC and partners, including local Youth Corps programs and volunteers, to complete one of the last remaining sections of the CDT in Colorado. When complete, this 32 mile trail section, which co-aligns with the Colorado Trail, will be a highly desirable, primitive back-country hiking and horseback riding experience.
Continental Divide National Scenic Trail: The Continental Divide Trail is one of the few remaining ’wild’ places in our country, and was designated as one of America’s national scenic trails by Congress in 1978. However the Trail remains incomplete in many areas today. Colorado boasts over 800 miles of the CDT; New Mexico and Montana each host 750 miles; Wyoming, 610 miles, and Idaho 180 miles. Considered one of the greatest long-distance trails in the world, along with the Appalachian and Pacific Crest Trails, they make up “Triple Crown” of National Scenic Trails.
Continental Divide Trail Coalition: The Continental Divide Trail Coalition (CDTC) is the National Partner working on behalf of the CDT. CDTC coordinates with community and partner organizations to build a strong community of supporters and trail enthusiasts who want to see the Continental Divide Trail completed and protected.
