Trail Description
About this trail
This section of Doctor Park is the classic descent, and the only section of the trail that most people ride. This is a ripping descent through high meadows, beautiful aspens, and dry, sandy, gnarly rock gardens.

Review: It gets underway as a classic old-school downhill trail - steep and fairly straight apart from a couple of switchbacks. There are lots of drops and lots of rock garden action which gets better and better. Just when your brake fingers really start complaining the trail changes completely. You're down in the valley among aspens and on a very fast rollicking trail - narrow and with a really nice surface of weathered granite. It's a blast! And there is more variety to come... After a little climbing you start a wonderful, technical descent around and through large granite boulders on the side of a steep slope. There is enough side exposure to keep you focused until you roll into North Bank Campround - smiling from ear to ear - assuming you have advanced riding skills!...

Review: This descent starts in some high meadows where you can get some serious speed. Next is a conifer forest where the rock gardens take over. As the forest changes to aspens, the rocks go away. Suddenly, you are on a perfectly smooth, high-speed racetrack. This section leads to seriously sore cheeks induced by ridiculous grins. As the trail leaves the aspens, it becomes sandy and rocky. You then ride a series of switchbacks down the mountain. This is my favorite section of singletrack anywhere.

Review: Such an amazing descent! This is hands-down one of the best descents in the Crested Butte area.
