    [Xpost] Crested Butte Video – In at Crystal Peak and out Cement Creek

    Here’s a pretty tough loop that’ll put a dent in your soul. There’s a lot of high-altitude (10K to +12K) elevation gain on some steep slopes. Pay to play. There are fantastic views that few get to share. There are miles of stunning downhill.

    Roll up Cement Creek Road to Crystal Peak Trail. Climb Crystal Peak to 400. Take 400 to Doubletop. Turn left on Hunter ‘s Creek Trail for an awesome descent back to Cement Creek trail. Take Cement Creek trail back to Cement Creek Rd.

    If you have true AM blood running, this loop easily trumps the Reno-Flag-Bear-Deadman’s loop.

    Looks like an awesome ride! I have a few long rides in mind to check out when I have the chance to go back to CB, seems like I need to add this to the list! Thanks for posting

    We make it to CB every year. Our lives would be incomplete w/o that.

    Another great video- I read about this ride just before my Cb trip in July but couldn't muster the will for the climb up Crystal- now I see I missed a great ride.

    Cat is out of the bag now! For good reason though, best part about the 583-400 ride is you can make it a 3,4,5,6 hour ride depending on which way you decide to drop or climb. A few years ago you would never see anyone out there, now every time I ride it, you happen upon someone else.

    ^^^ I wouldn't worry too much. Most people won't go beyond 401 and the other "must do" rides because that is what the guide books tell them to ride.
