The Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDNST) is one of the most significant trail systems in the world. Established by Congress in 1978, it spans 3,100 miles between Mexico and Canada, traverses five states and connects countless communities along its spine. Over the past 30 years it has gradually assumed a marked physical shape; and preserves and celebrates an opportunity for adventure and history with one of the most significant features on our planet.
The Continental Divide Trail Coalition (CDTC)is a 501 (c) (3) national non-profit organization that seeks to create a community committed to construct, promote, and protect in perpetuity the CDNST which stretches from Canada to Mexico, through, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. Our vision is that the CDNST becomes a renowned and revered natural resource for you to connect with friends and family, draw inspiration, and create outstanding personal experiences. Be a part of an amazing conservation legacy effort and help us build a movement on behalf of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, and hope you’ll join us in helping to preserve, protect and promote this American Legacy!
