Meet the woman behind Colorado's highest trails

Colorado is home to 54 fourteeners – mountains that rise to 14,000 feet high or higher and serve as popular routes for many avid hikers despite not having designed trails. To keep hikers safe while also preserving plant life on these mountains, the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, which is made of a group of statewide outdoor nonprofits, has been rerouting and restoring the trail system.
