    im going to visit my brother in colorado this summer and he is wanting to do some biking/4x4ing in his new truck. so we where thinking some shuttle trails would be our best bet to cover both. does anyone know a good area maybe near crested butte that could satisfy both needs for a weekend? we will have our wives in tow that tent to be a bit more timid than use so we are looking for some thing that will keep everyone comfortable yet entertained

    Check out the Phil’s World trail system in Cortez or the RAT trails in Ridgway.  Both systems are incredible with the ability to put together anything from a short loop to a solid 20+ mile ride.  The Rib Cage at Phil’s World is consistently rated one of the best flow trails in the U.S…and rightfully so.

    Guess I should have read your whole post rather than just the title before I posted.  For some reason, can’t delete or edit my response.  Sorry ’bout that…

    Yup, plenty of 4×4 shuttling to be done right in and around Crested Butte! Grab a map, look for the 4×4 roads, and the singletrack dropping off of them. No end of options.

    Doctor Park is a great trail and a 4×4 shuttle could be useful, but you really only need a decent rig for the last mile or two, and it’s not truly burly 4×4 road. Most moderately high clearance vehicles can make it.

    That said, plenty of options if you want to get adventurous.
