There’s a lot of ways to get from A to B, but the Woods Walk has got to be the prettiest route from town to the Lower Loop and the rest of the Slate River Valley trails. You can pick up the Woods Walk at any one of a number of trailheads: on Kebler Pass Road, at the end of Teocalli Avenue, and out Peanut Lake Road. Depending where you start, you’ll cruise through aspen trees or an open singletrack lined with wildflowers with STUNNING views of Mt. CB. A great place to start with kids or beginning riders, you can always tack on the Lower Loop or just swing back to town on Peanut Lake Road. For more advanced riders, it’s so smooth and flowy, just push on the gas and let ‘er ride!
Sponsor : Elk Mountain Lodge
The Elk Mountain Lodge is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood surrounded by historic residences, yet only two blocks from the Crested Butte’s “main street,” Elk Avenue, two blocks from the shuttle to Mt. Crested Butte Ski Area, and four blocks from the groomed Nordic ski trails.
Most guests who fly in for their stay at the lodge don’t bother with car rentals because everything is so convenient.
