Additional Details:

The Junction Creek section of the Colorado Trail is multi-use so riders may encounter hikers, trail runners and other users and should follow right of way protocol when meeting other groups. The Colorado Trail is located in higher elevation terrain and sudden weather shifts are possible; riders should bring appropriate warm layers in anticipation of this. In addition, riders should be prepared with a stocked repair kit and a first aid kit.
