When you are surrounded by some of the most beautiful natural landscapes this country has to offer, it is hard to say that the Upper/Upper Upper loops are the best. They are perfect for anyone looking for a day walk around Mt. Crested Butte that...More

Great and beautiful ride from the views to the flowers and the trees. Trail heads have porta johns and parking. People are courteous and friendly. Challenging places with climbs, roots, rocks. Just awesome!

I'm not much of a hiker but this was a great trail to hike on. There were multiple trails for different comfort levels and the scenery was sweeet. This is a beautiful area.

We started our hike on the Woods Trail out of Crested Butte, which then joined Lower Loop, followed by Upper Loop. The views are outstanding and the wildflowers abundant. The downside is that you must share the trails with mountain bikers. While they are courteous,...More

Close to town and easy to walk to. You do not need a 4 wheel drive to be able to hike and enjoy the mountain scenery. The trails are busy with bikers, but expected that so if you want solitude this is not for you....More
