    Help a Front Range'r out!!!

    Hi folks,

    I'm new to Colorado (Denver) and have only ever ridden Front Range and Fruita/Grand Junction trails.

    I've got a buddy visiting during Labor Day week and I'm looking at spending a few days in the southwest part of the State, mainly looking to ride and hike.

    What are some must ride trails in Crested Butte/Durango/anywhere in that area?

    What are the best (tent) camping options in the same areas?

    And as a bonus, what are some great hikes down that way? 14kers or just great hikes otherwise....

    Thanks for all the help!!

    I'm not a local, but I ride CB every year. For me, these are CB must-rides (I'm sure some locals might disagree with at least some):

    401
    Dyke
    Reno/Flag/Bear
    Teocalli Ridge
    Doctors Park

    Sweet - thanks. I'll look into those.

    Anyone have recommendations for shops to rent from in CB or Durango or whatever town is closest to the best rides?
