Berthoud Pass Sunrise 1

Continetnal Divide Trail

After 14 switchbacks up the Berthoud Pass portion of the Continental Divide Trail, this is the beautiful Colorado landscape that stretched out before you. The sun rises over the distant peaks, and below Highway 40 winds its way down to Winter Park, then Fraser, then onto Granby. You can also branch off from the Continental Divide Trail and wind your way over to Mary Jane ski resort and the Winter Park slopes - all the while following the path along Vasquez Ridge.
