Colorado Trail Race: GPS/GPX Tracks and Waypoints

Edit: June 18, 2016: The new 2016 version is complete, including waypoints for the 9th edition of the Colorado Trail Guidebook and 6th edition of the Colorado Trail Data Book!

With Jerry Brown's generous permission (Bear Creek Survey), I have added his waypoints to my GPX file. These waypoints are the same that ones that are used in the Colorado Trail Data Book (6th Edition), and the Official Colorado Trail Guidebook (9th Edition), which makes finding water, etc. far easier. Please note that the waypoints from Jerry Brown's file are coded to make them shorter and easier to read. For the key, please buy a copy of the Colorado Trail Data Book (6th Edition)--not only will you have a amazing on-trail guidebook, but you'll also be supporting the great folks who make the Colorado Trail possible. Last, but not least, visit Jerry's page at, and click his "donate" button to buy him a beer or six. Thanks! 

Simply right-click to download the file, unzip, and enjoy.
