Slate River Valley
Slate River Road, Road 734, leads drivers along the Slate River, past Nicholson Lake and Forest Service trailheads. Loops can be made past Emerald Lake, on Washington Gulch Road and, for those looking for longer drives, up to Marble, Colorado.
This is a 7.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail. It features beautiful wild flowers in the summer and amazing colors in the fall. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from June until September.
Hiking is one of the many activities to get you outside in Crested Butte. While there are many hikes to summit peaks or spend the entire day on the trail, there are also many 1-2 hour hikes that can be fun for everyone. Link to the article below to get some ideas. Give me a call or send me a message with any questions or for further suggestions.

Crested Butte Bike Week
There are many ways to enjoy the outdoors in the Crested Butte area. One you may not have thought of is whitewater rafting. The rafting season varies depending on how much snow we get and how long it takes to melt, but generally starts in mid-May and runs through mid-July (or later). There are two companies who offer a variety of options on the Taylor and Gunnison Rivers. You can read more about them below.
If you end up going rafting, let me know what you think and maybe even share a photo with me. Have fun!
Three Rivers Resort
Three Rivers Resort is located in the historic mountain town of Almont, Colorado on the Taylor River. The resort features cabins dating back to the 1800’s, which are a short walk from the merging of the Taylor and East Rivers to form the Gunnison River. Blue skies, high mountains, and crystal clear trout-filled waters make this spot the ideal getaway. The resort is conveniently situated in between Gunnison and Crested Butte.
