Mountain Biking Crystal Peak

****   Add a review
#620 of 1,345 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#6,316 in the world

The Crystal Peak Trail climbs up the flanks of Crystal Peak and connects to other trails such as Brush Creek and Hunter Creek.

This is a brutally steep climb that is hike-a-bike for most of its length, eventually topping out at the breathtaking beautiful Star Pass at over 12,300 feet.

    The climb up Crystal Peak is brutal, but the epic views at the top and the great descent options from that point make it all worth-while!
