Crested Butte, Colorado, has been called “the last great Colorado ski town.” But more than that, Crested Butte offers miles of hiking and biking trails, nearby rivers and streams for fly fishing, and has been dubbed the Wildflower “Capital of Colorado.”
Crested Butte rests at 8,885’ and the mountain it is named after, Creste Butte, rises to 12,162’. Several roads, mostly dirt, lead out of Crested Butte, as well. Gothic Road is well known for its aspen trees. West Maroon Pass, a hiking trail that connects Crested Butte to Aspen, also starts along Gothic Road. The wildflowers along this path can be amazing in the summer, especially late July and August.
