    Best shuttle-able trails in Crested Butte?

    I'm having a hard time finding good downhill trails to shuttle in Crested Butte. We will have two smaller SUV's, so not a ton of ground clearance. Looking for tech - jumps, drops, ext. the more the better.

    We don't mind climbing but would like an "off" day here and there.

    How about the lift served on the mountain? You're not going to get much better than that.

    We're just some Midwest boys with puny little lungs, so we shuttled the 401. Problem was my Knucklehead brother left the keys to the lower car in my truck up on top, so we ended riding up the road anyways. Helped make my lungs bigger though.
    Saddle up, Effendi. We ride.

    The road up to 401 reminds me of the Death Road in Bolivia.. lot of parts just wide enough for one vehicle...My big F150 not sure I would want to venture it up there especially if you meet another vehicle coming the other way.. LOL.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    Ha... Shuttling the 401? You still have a steep-ass climb from the top of Schofield Pass. Riding up to that point from the Rustler Gulch TH is the easy part.

    Das a Fact. Those switchbacks made this grown man wimper. But at least it's pretty and it's singletrack. Going up that road just wears on your mind. There was a sticker on the Schofield Pass sign. it was a Marlboro looking cowboy and it said "Harden the Fxxx up" I guess I didn't pay enough attention. Definitely worth the ride up though!! Definitely!!
