Short but sweet, and one of the valley's newest trails.

Adam Kagy

Overview

No parking allowed on Saddle Ridge road.

Description

Short and sweet with fast flowy downhill and minimum uphill. This trail is one of the newest in Crested Butte, and it's built with mountain bikers in mind. It's also one of the first trails to melt off snow in the spring due to the south facing sunny slope.

This trail makes a great connector or fast after work ride. Many riders will ride this in conjunction with Snodgrass or Lower Loop for a longer ride. The views of the Slate river valley are stunning with blooming Lupine and various other flowers in Summer.
