    Crystal Mill

    I was possibly looking into riding the road up to Crystal Mill and the town, are there bike trails around there to ride once I get up there?
    I love my bike!

    I don't know of any singletrack in that area. It's wilderness to the north and south of there. Everything else is jeep roads.

    I've seen a bunch of people riding their mountain bikes, but to my knowledge there are only dirt roads in the area. There's a big loop you can do, and if you feel really strong you can ride up to Schofield Pass (about 3 miles straight up from the Mill) and then do the 401 trail near Crested Butte.

    My wife and I hiked down to the Mill from the north side of Schofield Pass last year, it's absolutely beautiful.

    Lead King Basin makes for an excellent loop. It is jeep road but there is plenty of climbing and technical (rocky) descending. Rides best clockwise. Incredible scenery, if you're into that. You know, meadows filled with wildflowers, huge waterfalls, rugged mountains,etc.

    As suggested, it is also possible to ride to the top of Schofield, hit the 401 and ride back.
