Great bike trail with kids as there was great single track and not too much uphill. Wonderful views and a river to cool off at.

This is my fav, easy and dog friendly trail literally “in town”. It skirts the Slate River and has mildly different terrain from open meadows, forest canopy and aspen groves. Very mild climb connecting the loop back to town w great views of the Butte. Hikers watch out for bikers. Great trail run. Also note it connects to other trails so you can make it a longer trek if you want.

This is an amazing trail. Not much climbing so a nice way to get in 7+ miles and enjoy the views. Through trees, open fields, water and mountain views, this trail has it all

Fun, leisurely outing. Heavily trafficked with walkers and bikes. Plenty of places to stop and look around. Perfect for a casual stroll.

Too easy=too many people. Could not go 20 yards without people everywhere. Pretty but was not the escape we were looking for.

Easy 2 hour trail that takes you on a tour of the beautiful Crested Butte valley. Pretty flat, but lots of pretty things to look at.

Hiked the Woods Walk and partially the Lower loop trail because locals said great wildflowers. Not so. Was a really boring trail. More of a stroll in the evening than a hike. Started from Kebler pass side at Trappers crossing, went down Woods Walk to Lower loop and back. Won't go back.
