Summary:
I liked this trail a lot but wish it was longer. I rode it from the ski hill. Rode Upper to Upper Upper turn a right on Brush Creek road and then headed back up trail (Tony's I think the name is). So basically rode it as an out and back. The thing I liked was that it was rolling. In other words, it alternated between climbing and decending. No long killer climbs increased the fun factor. Plenty of technical rocky climbs and down hills. I liked it a lot better than snodgrass because upper & upper/upper were much more technical and no sustained climbs.

Recommended Route:
Ski hill, road, upper, upper upper to Brush Creek road take right to the next trail that goes back up the hill to upper upper, take a left to upper, back to road and then to ski hill.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
401.

Summary:
Not a huge fan. Good singletrack for sections, but a little too much work for a trail that doesn't go too far. For all that anaerobic work, I'd like to see it crest out at a viewpoint or loop around to something of substance. Instead, it just busts a gut climbing, gets briefly hiky, stays in the aspens, then just drops steeply back out to Brush Creek. Would make for a great after work ride if you actually lived in CB, but not really a destination ride. You add it in to any of those rides out Brush Creek, but it is severe enough to pre-fatigue you a great deal if you are going out to Deer, Teocali, Farris, or Strand or be enough to just bonk you if you do it on the way back into town from those rides.

Recommended Route:
Tony's to Upper to Upper Upper down to Brush Creek, right on the road, hop back on Upper, and left on Tony's back to town.

All of them

Summary:
Starting from Mt Crested Butte area, follow the upper loop trail and keep left and upward, it will eventually shoot you down a steep trail and onto a dirt road (can't rememeber the name, but the one everyone uses to access the various trails southeast of Crested Butte). A good start to the rest of the days riding. I don't know if it is still legal, when I did it a few years ago it was pretty grown over, not many people want that kind of angle.

Recommended Route:
When the trail splits, just keeping going up and up and up. It was hard to identify and looked like an animal trail.
