This trail is the official middle section of the full Upper Loop, and the trail just below it that we used to ride has been permanently closed. In another great community effort, this CBMBA-led reroute in 2014/15 took some time to build, as there are 12 bridges/decks that span drains. The terrain is somewhat technical, but the bridges, paired with a sound CBMBA alignment makes it a fun favorite for locals and visitors. The bridges are 36″ wide and covered in metal mesh, making them solid to ride, run, or hike in all weather.


Bridges on


The Crested Butte Development Team is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was created to give the youth of our community a fun and safe outlet to explore the amazing mountains of the Gunnison valley by mountain bike. Our main focus is to create lasting memories and provide each rider with not only superior bike handling skills but life skills that they can carry into their adulthood. We hope to instill a respect for the trails, our community, and fellow teammates.
