I heard about a new trail last week (new to me, at least), one which isn’t even on any maps, and instantly wanted to check it out. While there are certain trails in the area that I love and know like the back of my hand, I love the exploration factor even more. Unfortunately, after roughly 15 years in Crested Butte, it’s becoming pretty hard to find new trails in the area. There are a few, to be sure, but not many. So, like I said, once I found out about a new trail, I headed there immediately.
Did I like it? It’s pretty good, for a change of pace, although a chainsaw for the 15 or so downed trees would really help the flow of the trail out a lot. Also, I didn’t find the top half of the trail, which is pretty faint as far as I can tell. Maybe if people want the trail to get burned in, they could flag the top of the trail, but that’s not up to me. Speaking of which, I’ll only say that this trail is somewhere near Deadman’s….
