Description

Use this primitive doubletrack dirt (and at times very rocky) road to connect Taylor Pass to Star Pass. The road can be ridden in either direction. It's often used with Trail 400 (Star Pass) to connect Crested Butte to Aspen via Express Creek Road (& Castle Creek Rd.) or Richmond Ridge Road.

Open to motorized vehicles. If you're venturing back here, be sure to have a map in addition to the MTB Project MTB Project mobile app because there are additional motorized routes that are not currently shown on MTB Project, and you could take a wrong turn if you're not paying attention.
