The Continental Divide Trail or CDT is a 3100 mile wilderness trail that runs along The Rocky Mountain Range crossing 5 states, 25 National Forests, 4 National Parks and 3 Indian Reservations. A couple from England walked it in 2008 from May to October, they were unaided carrying all they needed to survive on thier backs only leaving the trail to re-supply, take a shower and sink a few well deserved beers!

We averaged about 20 miles a day, 6 days a week for a total of five and a half months, while tackling everything that Mother Nature had to throw at us including mountainous terrain, adverse weather conditions, water scarcity and not forgetting the rattle snakes and grizzly bears!! This is why only a handful of backpackers attempt this annually and even fewer finish in the same year.

This Documentary was shot by Cookie and Paul. The 2 Hour Feature Movie will be shown on “The Hiking Channel” on Boxee this month


Feel free to contact me at any time. Started Backpacking in 2003 and have never looked back. My all time favorite hike was last April when I hiked the Sycamore Wilderness Canyon. No trails, no signs, just wilderness and a 3,000 foot steep drop into the Canyon. I ran out of water my third day. Why? There was no water in the Canyon. You can check out my video on the "" page. Thanks for dropping by.

  • Guys,

    Compliments frist on the hike. I did the AT in 1981, so I at least start to know a little of the physical and mental effort the CDT took. Beyond that accomplishment, the “Cliff Notes” video of your trek is just delightfully done with some truly awesome shots.

    That trip, I sustect, made your lifes. For the record, it made my evening!
