Nice views, lots of wildflowers, and lots of flies due to horse dung on the somewhat muddy trails. There are a number of options as to trails, from fairly easy to steeper. It was my first hike in Crested Butte area.

This is a great trail - not too difficult - winds through meadows and aspen and pine forest. You'll have to share parts of the trail with horses (and what they leave behind). TAKE bug spray - you'll need it in the summer. If you during wildflower season (late June - Late July) you will be amazed. Truly spectacular (especially if it was a heavy snow winter). There is another trail called Snodgrass Trail - same trail head - that branches off to the left after you cross the second set of stairs (over a barb-wire fence). Also a great trail but beware of lots and lots of mountain bikers on a very narrow and windy path. Highly recommend this in summer.

The Snodgrass trail was a great trail! We went the route listed on this app. It is a perfect mix of difficulty, got the heart rate up at times but left us with beautiful views of Aspens and Pines. We started at the trailhead and took a left at the first fork. This was was mostly uphill the entire way, which left us going downhill the second half of the loop. Took our 9 month old Boxer puppy with us and she loved it too!

Did this hike two weeks ago and there was still snow on the trail once you get into the trees. It gives you a perfect view of mount crested butte and the surrounding valley.

Awesome relaxed hike! If you cut off to the right in the start it takes you through all the aspens.

Beautiful hike!! The flies were annoying, but worth putting up with them to see spectacular views!! It was a nice smooth trail, yet good elevation gain. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this hike.
