    Minimum age to OC in Colorado?

    According to the map on this site the minimum age is 18, but I want to be extra sure. I am turning 21 in a few weeks but not in time for my backpacking trip (Weminuche wilderness area). I am from Wisconsin, which is why I am not familiar with CO laws.

    Since I will be under 21 I was wondering if anyone could help me find the exact up to date statute number so that I can print off a copy of it and keep it with me, it would really help put my nervousness at ease.

    I am already aware the OC is not allowed in Denver but are there any other place I need to be aware of besides the regulars (gov buildings, schools, etc.).

    Minimum age is 18. I don't recall the statue number, but I am sure of it. As far as backpacking goes, in CO you can legally concealed carry if you are hunting, so just by a small game tag and you can concealed carry because you are "coyote hunting".

    No Denver, schools (I think its w/in 500 feet), anyplace where federal employees work, and anyplace thats posted.

    Have fun and remember to watch out for those big kitty cats we got over here!

    That is pretty interesting and I would definitely look into that if I thought I would have somewhere to conceal it but due to the way my backpack fits (shoulder straps and waist straps) I wouldn't really have anywhere to put it.

    Even though I could conceal when I am backpacking, I never do either. Open is just more handy.

    It's 1000' for schools.
