Calling all CDT veterans! I’ve been researching an upcoming CDT ride but I’m a little overwhelmed by the huge amount of options for routes/campsites/hotels/etc. I’ve been reading ride reports, watching videos, and studying the gpsKevin route. One thing that seems conspicuously lacking is info on campsites. Seems like many spend their nights in hotels/motels... Those that camp seem to just plop down wherever they were when darkness fell. But I’m a real sucker for a good campsite! The ride I would like to do would include 2-4 nights camping punctuated by a night in town at a hotel/motel. I’m thinking 2-3 such nights would suffice. I would also like to have 1 or two “layover” days, where we could leave our camping stuff and do some more challenging trails for the day. To help me narrow this down, I would like to know: What are your favorite campsites? Which towns would make for the best hotel/motel nights? If you could pick an area to explore a bit more for a day, which would it be? Thanks in advance for any advice, and thanks to all the legends who have gone before me for the wealth of info already available!
