There are special places and unique vistas around nearly every Colorado corner. You can help ensure these places exist for generations to come by staying on roads and trails, keeping speeds in check, leaving campsites and picnic spots just as you found them, and following instructional signs while you’re out and about in our state.
Lower Loop connects with a few other trails, providing alternate routes such as Woods Walk and the Budd Trail along the way. There are also a few benches on the trail inviting you to sit, relax, and enjoy the scenery.
Hike to the summit of Mt. Crested Butte or just take a stroll through aspens and wildflower soaked meadows. No matter what you decide, the views of the Elk Mountain Range are spectacular and the air is pristine.
