Great hike! Beautiful views mixed with time in the aspens. Some parts were a small challenge up hill but not too strenuous for our first day here. Loved seeing the old mine

Amazing mountain biking trail for intermediate/beginner! Amazing views of Mt. CB! Did on a Wednesday - on a weekend probably way too crowded. Amazing aspen groves!!!

These pictures aren’t of the actual trail. There is NO WATER along this trail, you have to go down from the trail or continue on the upper lower trail in order to see water. Other than that, it was beautiful but had a ton of mountain bikers.

This is not a good place to go for a walk with your dogs. The trail is crowded. There were so many mountain bikes I spend half the time off the trail. I saw two snakes and that seemed unsafe for my dogs. The walk was easy and pretty but not enjoyable.

Beautiful wildflowers, clearly marked! Mixed shade and sunshine, and beautiful views! Not sure why it’s rated as moderate!

Nice, easy loop that was moderately trafficked when we went around 6pm. Lots of bicyclists and off leash dogs.

Nice loop with a decent incline. Beautiful through the mountain/forest.

Great trail! Awesome views and an bundance of wildflowers still. Saw yellow toadflax for the first time. We combined Budd Trail/Upper Lower/ Lower trails. Our favorite trail in Crested Butte!

First to Review

This was an amazing hike, filled with flowers and incredible views! The trail is very well maintained. We encountered mountain bikers throughout the popular trail, but found that everyone shares the trail responsibly and in kind. Highly recommended!
