The Lily Lake Trail is a seldom ridden trail near the Kebler Pass area that makes for a nice beginner cross country ride if you combo it with the Kebler Wagon Trail 606. It’s also a nice option if you’d like to get away from crowds or take your dog on a ride since there is plenty of water along this trail.
Start by climbing up Splains Gulch Road, in 1.5mi you’ll see a sign on your right that reads “Lily Lake Tr. No. 639” and under that it says “Ohio Pass Road No. 730 3 miles”. Take this right and leave the road and onto the singletrack. After a short while the trail will open up into a fairly large meadow where it flattens out. After another quarter to a half mile you’ll come to a spot that looks as if the trail splits, one track goes right, another goes left. Stay left, but if in question always look for the rock cairns to show you the right route as there are plenty of them. As you wind through the trees and meadows you’ll come to a nice fun, fast downhill with drainage berms to jump and ends out at Ohio Pass road right near Kebler Pass and Kebler Wagon Trail 606.
Sponsor : Mikey's Pizza
When Mikey Larson and his wife Mary opened Mikey’s Pizza in 2007, they filled a niche by bringing a much-needed New York-style pizzeria to the people of Crested Butte. Hailing from New Jersey, Mikey understands that the best pizza consists not of bells and whistles, but high quality ingredients. At Mikey’s, hand-tossed, thin-crust pizzas are lovingly made with non-GMO flour and fresh ingredients prepared daily. The result? Simple yet “real good” food. Not in the mood for pizza? Mikey’s also offers sandwiches, salads, calzones and all-day breakfast options made with cage-free eggs. Want to experience Crested Butte like those lucky enough to call it home? Grab a spot outside, watch skateboarders drop into the bowl and enjoy a slice of Mikey’s Pizza in the shadow of Mt. Crested Butte.
