Continental Divide TrailThe Continental Divide Trail is a footpath running 3,100 miles (5000 km) through the United States of America between Mexico and Canada. It follows the continental divide along the Rocky Mountains and traverses five U.S. states - Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. In Montana it crosses Triple Divide Peak which separates the Hudson Bay, Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean drainages.
In 2002, the trail was considered 70% complete using a combination of dedicated trails and small roads. The uncompleted portions of the trail must be traveled by bushwhacking. The trail association estimates that only about a dozen people a year attempt to hike the entire trail, taking about 6 months to complete it.
