“One of the best out and back rides in Crested Butte.”— Adam Kagy
The climb starts here and doesn't relent much. Switchback your way up the mountain through the dark timber steeply at times until getting dumped out to another road. A sign directs you to take a right on this road. About 1/2 mile on the road, another sign directs you to get back onto singletrack to your left.
Wind your way up through the dark timber and enjoy the technical uphill on the way. The trail eventually starts opening up, stay straight at the intersection for trail 436. Once at the lake, marvel in its beauty and get ready for a ripping technical descent all the way back into town.
Note: It's usually a good idea to bring some bug spray just in case the mosquitoes are bad in the dark timber.
