Walking the Continental Divide

Chris (our 2019 Award Winner) hiked the entire 2650 mile Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) in 2016 but the Continental Divide Trail is a significantly greater challenge, with more difficult terrain and a more isolated route that is not yet completely defined. Some stretches use backcountry dirt roads and the occasional tarmac road where off road trail doesn’t yet exist. The CDT was designed to be a wilderness trail, and the majority of the route passes through protected wilderness (under the National Wilderness Preservation Scheme), other public lands (managed by the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management) and National Parks, including Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain and Glacier. The beauty of the wild landscapes and route through incredible remote landscapes are Chris' main reasons to attempting this trip.
