Mountain Biking Whestone Vista

*****   Add a review
#456 of 1,338 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#4,457 in the world

Whetstone Vista is a rocky, technical descent down from the Upper Upper loop
to Brush Creek Road. While this trail is chock full of rocks and some sharp turns
and switchbacks, none of the rocks offer very serious challenges. Taken all
together, though, it's a rough ride!

Combine this trail with some of the others in the area for a great ride. We rode
the shuttle from town up to Mount Crested Butte, then rode across on the
Upper Loop to the Upper Upper Loop to Whetstone Vista (this trail) and then
back to town on Brush Creek Road and the New Deli Trail.

    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!

    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.
