The Brush Creek Trail is probably one of the best bets for early season wildflower viewing. It is an easy hike (once a farm road) that leads hikes out along the east side of Mount Crested Butte for about two miles. As you can see from the above picture, there are an abundance of flowers and great views of the Brush Creek Valley. Cattle grazing fly fishermen fishing and views of the pyramid like mountain, Teocalli, are just a few of the sights you will have along this very easy hike. No matter what your hiking abilities, this hike is worth doing just for the early season flower display.
