Since my college days when I worked as a backpacking guide in Colorado, I have been on hundreds, if not thousands of trails.  I constantly search for new routes, peaks, and trails to explore.  The trails routes section of this site is a compilation of over a decade of hiking divided into eight different regions.

Use the maps on the eight pages, which are linked below, to find hundreds of different trailheads.  The maps’ hiker icons are color-coordinated to help you find hikes from beginner to strenuous.  The table under the corresponding map will give info on the distance, elevation gain, difficulty of the trail along with a The World Hiker Rating, which will tell you which trails were my favorites.  By clicking on the title of each trail on the table you will be taken to a page which I recommend using for gathering further details before heading out on your hike.

I hope that you enjoy the Trail Routes section of The World Hiker!
