More Skinny Singletrack

(Last Updated On: August 14, 2014)

Generally speaking, I like my singletrack skinny. Yes, the wider, well-manicured trails at Crested Butte Mountain Resort are tons of fun. As are many of the most popular trails in the area which tend to be fairly wide with all the traffic they get. But for me those trails that are either difficult to get to or hard to find are the best trails of all. This trail? It’s tough to find either end, although it’s generally well-defined the rest of the way. Most of the time, that is:

We started off on the more well-used 412 above Walrod Gulch.

It’s still green out there:

What goes good with green? Red, especially when they’re rocks.

This is definitely a cross country trail, so expect lots of ups and downs.

Beautiful location above Cement Creek, with Italian Mountain behind.

On the way back, we got to check out the newly opened extension of the Cement Creek Trail. Awesome work as usual by the Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association and all the volunteers.

There you have it: Skinny Singletrack. Where is this trail? Up Cement Creek 😉

    Sneaky? No, it’s pretty obvious what the trail is for anyone who has ridden it. But not searchable without the name- that’s all I was going for. And there are lots of trails on the Lat 40 map that are hard to find or basically abandoned…

Got something to say? We love your comments!
