Only having a little bit of time and wanting to get outside for a few, I headed up to the Judd Falls Trail just north of the Town site of Gothic today. Gothic is an old mining town that is now used as a botanical research center to study the incredible diversity of wildflowers found around Crested Butte. The trail itself is a 2 to 3 mile round trip adventure that offers some great views and an enjoyable waterfall. You can extend the length of this hike by following the creek further up above the waterfall. On this particular day we were able to come across two groups of deer grazing on the hillsides.
