The Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (in short CDT) is a United States National Scenic Trail with a length measured by the Continental Divide Trail Coalition of 3,028 miles (4,873 km) between the U.S. border with Chihuahua, Mexico and the border with Alberta, Canada. Frequent route changes and a large number of alternate routes result in the actual hiking distance to be between 2,700 miles (4,300 km) and 3,150 miles (5,070 km). The CDT follows the Continental Divide of the Americas along the Rocky Mountains and traverses five U.S. states — Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. In Montana near the Canadian border the trail crosses Triple Divide Pass (near Triple Divide Peak, from which waters may flow to either the Arctic Ocean, Atlantic Ocean or Pacific Ocean.

The CDT is a combination of dedicated trails and small roads and about 70 percent completed. Portions designated as uncompleted must be traveled by roadwalking on dirt or paved roads.

The CDT was described in 2013 by a Triple Crown hiker as “Raw, wild, remote and unfinished; it is a trail that will make use of all the skills of an experienced backpacker. It is also a trail that is beautiful, stunning and perhaps the most rewarding of the major long-distance hiking trails.” Distances given are approximate as the trail is still being constructed in some areas and is sometimes re-routed.

  • Thank you for your interview – it gave me a lot of insight that relates to the veterans I know. Thank you for your service.

  • Brady, Thanks for doing this.. I am looking forward watching to your hike. I did something similar (Ozark Trail only 230 miles) but not to this extreme. It did wonders for me during a tough divorce. Walk, think, eat, sleep and repeat does the soul wonders…..
    In this episode, I truley am glad you shared your interview at the end. It put a lot in perspective of why your doing this adventure. If you help just one veteran (and yourself) with posting this series, it will make all your sweat, pain and joy worth it.
    I did the CDT on motorcycle this year, (Not the hardway like you, just used GPS kevins route.) I did find that backpacking offers entirely more healing and personal growth then a motorcycle adventure. I guess it has to do with all the time to think on the trail.
    Anyway, thanks again for doing this series.

  • Hey Brady, I'll be the first to comment. I appreciate you sharing. It has answered questions I had, that I did not want to ask, but did want to. I myself was a 91B, no combat interaction, just training exercises that something or someone was injured. Bosnia was kicking off at the time. I commend you for being honest with yourself and finding what you need to feel that you are healthy in every aspect, if possibe. 🙂 I enjoy your videos and your story. It says a lot of a man to be honest with himself and be able to follow thru with getting the help you need to be happy in your relationships with others. Just remember, there is "always" someone out there that loves you. Heck, I just follow the channel and I love you dude. Medic to Medic. I'm proud of you. Keep it up. Love your videos. I ride a KTM 1290 🙂
