From Gothic, continue through the town and go another half mile until you see parking for Judd Falls. You can park here or continue up a dirt road another half mile to the Copper Creek trailhead. This last dirt road is passable by many fairly high-clearance cars. A true 4×4 is usually not necessary., Crested Butte, CO 81224

Copper Creek Trail starts out with a beautiful view of Judd Falls and winds up a valley that is mostly closed to much view due to the trees and narrowness of it; however, it is terrific when you get a view and we found a...More
