Crested Butte-Gunnison Folks. . .
I'm heading your way from Prescott, AZ this Thursday and can't wait to hit up your gorgeous country. I've decided (I think) on the following rides and have a couple questions.
1. 401/403 (Snodgrass is closed, unfortunately): What is the best way to ride lower 401? Should I ride all the way up Gothic Rd from the TH to Schofield Pass and take the entire 401 back, or take lower 401 from the TH then cut over to Gothic Rd and ride it up in order to take upper 401 down?
2. Reno/Flag/Bear/Deadman's: This is a loop, correct? Most maps I've found on-line make it appear as a one way and don't show an obvious loop connector.
3. Winter Park Friday evening for the free lifts.
4. Doctor Park vs. Hartman Rocks in Gunnison: Which one's best?
If I'm overlooking an obvious can't miss trail, feel free to rearrange my itinerary.
