Description
The Lower Loop offers some of the easiest singletrack in Crested Butte... and it's

also some of the most beautiful! The valley it rolls through is ringed with

gorgeous peaks and it offers breathtaking views of the clear Slate River winding

through the bottom of the valley. While this is most definitely a beginner trail,

there are a couple of small climbs and descents and some technical sections

spread throughout. Also, this trail is at 9,000 feet, so even super easy riding can

sometimes feel very difficult!



Even for the advanced ride, the Lower Loop is worth a look. While it might not

be challenging at all, the trail is superbly designed and turns into an uber flowy

roller coaster at speed!



The Lower Loop trail itself is only 2 miles long, but there are several other trails

that connect to it, including the Upper Lower Loop, that can be easily turned

into a great 10-12 mile ride. Read through some of the other trail descriptions

for more information, and investing in a good map or a guidebook is definitely be

a great idea!

Review: This is a fun ride, especially if you want to knock out some fun flowy singletrack that is close to town. Throw in the Upper Lower Loop on the western end and you will get a little more challenge.

Review: Built for beginners, but everyone can have fun here! Lots of traffic including trail runners and hikers, though.
