If you have heard about mountain biking in Crested Butte, you have heard about Trail 401. Famous for its incredible lengthy downhill with flowers up to the handle bars in July, this trail continues to earn its reputation during the other months as well. I rode the trail with some friends on the 14th of September and was offered some early fall colors and some perfect views down the Gothic Valley. This 13.5 mile loop can be shortened to an 8.5 mile loop if you start from Rustlers Gulch.
