The CDT runs 15.3 miles from Rabbit Ears Pass near US Hwy 40 to Buffalo Pass. Along the way, the trail passes Dumont Lake and several other high-alpine lakes. The Mountain View trail spurs off of this trail, and it offers some gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and down into the valley with Steamboat Springs below.
Much of this section of the CDT trail runs through gorgeous high-alpine meadows, which are just full of beautiful wild flowers!
Trail length: 15 miles

Gorgeous section of the CDT going through numerous high alpine meadows and past tons of high alpine lakes. Bring a camera!
