Mountain Biking to Crested Butte – First official riders make tracks up the Crystal

A 70 mile trail to Crested Butte?  Yes, you heard it right.  Eventually this trail will go from Carbondale to Crested Butte.  What an amazing day or two that will be for anyone who loves mountain biking.  And once you are here you’ll have access to the countless trails already here for your mountain biking pleasure.

Cheers,

CARBONDALE, Colorado — The ribbon was only just being cut to mark the official opening of the first phase of the new Crystal Valley Trail Friday afternoon when Jay Jahani was already dreaming of a bike ride to Crested Butte.

“I’m so happy to be here for the opening today, it’s one of my dreams,” said Jahani, of Glenwood Springs, who was one of about 80 people who turned out to celebrate the official opening of the new 5.2-mile section of paved trail from Carbondale to the BRB Campground.

“But I’m really looking forward to having it continue all the way over Kebler Pass some day,” he said.

Ellen Sassano of Carbondale agreed.

“This is great, but more than that I can’t wait until it goes over to Crested Butte,” she said.
