Bomber Traverse - Hatcher Pass, Alaska
Continental Divide to Long's Peak (Loop) - RMNP, Colorado
Chilkoot Trail - Skagway, Alaska
I am looking to complete one of these big trips within the next year - and I was wondering if anyone has done them and could give me some tips?
I did the Chilkoot in 2014. Had a blast. I'm currently an Admin for a Chilkoot Trail/Yukon River group on social media. What do you want to know?
Just about the difficulties in getting there by plane... how long it takes to complete the trek, and how much time total I would probably need to ask off work?
I live in Ohio and work in IT, so I would need to take PTO to be able to do this.
I have done a 50 and 80 mile trip in Colorado. Get on the Durango-Silverton railroad and ride it for about an hour and there is a out and back trail. 50 miler took about 7 days. Beautiful country in the San Juan mountain ranges.
