Mountain Biking Upper Loop

****   Add a review
#287 of 1,344 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#3147 in the world

Once your at the junction you have two options, left and right. if you go left you will climb thru aspens and open sage fields. untill you hit a road at that point you can take the road to MT. crested Butte trails or go back down. If you take a right, you will got about a quater mile and take a left where you will see a sign that says upper loop and jct to upper upper loop. this will bring you to the upper upper loop and whetston vista. This is also a great way to get to brush creek where there are numerous bike trails up in that area.

    Lots of punchy techy climbs if heading from Tonys trail to Brush creek road followed by a big downhill with plenty of switchbacks.

    Fun downhill from Upper upper that isn't very long and dumps you out onto Elk avenue into town. Not technical but fast and nice berms.

    A fun, fast, rock littered downhill connector from Upper Loop to several roads leading to Brush Creek, Strand Hill, or Deer Creek trails. A blast!

    A lot more technical than some of the signature CB trails, this is one long rock garden with a few open fields of flowers. Best ridden eastbound...and a great place to connect to Strand Hill or Deer Creek.

    This trail is a very mixed bag that has everything from tons of rocks to smooth, flowing sections. It also has some exposed sections with amazing views of the valley.

    Gorgeous singletrack that is easily accessible from town... I highly recommend it!

    This trail is upper intermediate to easy advanced. Definitely tons of rocks everywhere. Great singletrack! If ever a one mile trail deserved a 5 star rating, this is it.
