CODave- the 401 to Rustlers loop is the classic. And honestly any skill level can have fun on that. It climbs a long ways up past Gothic and then paralells the road dropping back down. You can shuttle it or ride from town. Everyone there can point you in the right direction.

Thanks Mike & Lorena, I've been to CB in the winter before but never in the summer.... I look forward to the adventure and will keep the group informed of what I find. I googled and came up wirth some great options, thought some may be closed. Conflicting information is so fun.

We have not riden at CB, skied yes, biked no.  While we were there we did check out the maps of the area and they seem to have a very good trail system in place.  The local bike shops will be able to hook you up with a map as well as advice.  Maps are also available at most of the tourist stops like hotels, cafes/restaurants, ect.  This area is on our the "bucket list" of areas we are looking forwar to riding.  Let us know what you think after your ride.

Can anyone give me some advice on riding in or near Crested Butte? We are heading out Friday for the weekend and I need to find something family friendly but still challenging.

I know this is last minute but... Impromptu trail race tonight 6/29/11 at 5:30 in Cheyenne Mountain State Park. We are going to do 4 laps of the MSC XC course. But if you want to do one, two, three whatever, come out for a hardworkout. Main trail head where the races there always start. Don't worry if you do not know the course, it is easy, we will learn ya.

Just driving on, with a badge, was a pain this week! Though it was mid week and during the day, the Santa Fe was deserted as well. Wonder if the South gate is even open.

I emailed the AFA Visitor Center about riding on the Academy and this is the reply

The Falcon trail is not open to the public. The only road open to the
public is the road from the north gate to the Visitor Center.
