Websites for CDT Trail Towns, Lodges & Chambers Of Commerce

This page will be used to provide links to Web sites for the various towns, cities, resorts and lodges near the Continental Divide Trail. There are also links for the departments of tourism and recreation for the states that the trail traverses.

These sites can be useful in planning. The folks who operate them usually will provide as much information as they can concerning their specific area or business. Occasionally, maps and information packages are available. Most of the sites have a phone number or email address that can be used to request additional information about motels and other businesses, post offices, transportation, weather and forest fires, etc.

Links to other sites that provide valuable information pertaining to CDT trail towns are shown at the bottom of the page.

If anyone has other links, send them to me as email at This link can also be used to report broken / dead links here (they change frequently), or if you have comments or suggestions concerning the page.
