Dr. Park, Crested Butte, CO

My family and friends Greg and Patty Keller headed to Crested Butte this past weekend to do some riding through the burgeoning wildflowers. And after 25 years of mountain biking, I can say Dr. Park is in my top 5 rides on the planet. Fast flowey singletrack through pristine aspen glades for miles. 

First, you have to cross over a wide stream that is flowing fast in the early summer.

It’s a gentle climb up to the summit, but the altitude is above 10K, so it’s slow going.

I can’t wait to try this during peak fall color.

Kyle and I start the CT on Wednesday, so be sure to check back in a few days for an update.
