This trail has long been known as a Crested Butte classic. The crazy thing is how few people are on it, which tends to leave it wide open for almost private use most days. The trail is 10.5 miles long and offers a lung challenging 2,000 ft climb. The first 5.5 miles of the climb is on a double track which is followed by a final mile of single track offer you spectacular views of the West Brush Creek Valley where few people wonder. After all that climbing you are rewarded with unique views of Star Peak, Pearl Mountain, and the east face of Mount Crested Butte. The 4 mile downhill is split between fast and rocky, and just fast. Hit it just right and you will find yourself surrounded by some of the best flowers Crested Butte has to offer!
