TR: Whitepine (14 Aug 2010)

(Last Updated On: July 27, 2017)

I have more photos to share from Newfoundland. But, first, I wanted to post some photos from a ride we did before I left. The Whitepine ride is a quality ride all-around. Though the trailhead as a bit over an hour from Crested Butte, the drive is worth it, especially for the views.

The ride begins on a fairly steep road.

Yep, that’s a Mennonite.

The road takes us to the single track.

Except most of it’s hike-a-bike.

With a bit of riding.

But, as the up goes up, the views get better and better. Tomichi Pass.

The trail ends at the Whitepine campground which is where we camped for the night.

And found ourselves surrounded by a wonderful stream

The next day, we headed out to ride near Marshall Pass!

    Well, I suppose you could get technical and call it Tomichi Pass Rd to Canyon Creek. Maybe that’s what you folks at Telluride Roofing call it. Or you could call it 888 to Canyon Creek, because that’s really what it is. But, technically, we also pass through Whitepine, which is what the loop has become named. I mean, you could go so far as to ask, “Why do people say they rode ‘Doctor’s’ when they really probably rode up Spring Creek as well?” But, I guess “Whitepine” annoys you just as much as it annoys me when people say they have a “temperature”. Of course you have a temperature! Everyone does!
