As we begin to warm up and thaw out, it’s easy to see why Crested Butte made the Men’s Journal list of The 20 Best Mountain Towns in America. Nestled at the end of the road and the base of Paradise Divide sits the historic mining town of Crested Butte. Surrounded by the the Elk Mountains, Crested Butte is truly a hidden treasure and outdoor lover’s paradise.

While plans are already underway for Crested Butte Bike Week, Crested Butte Mountain Resort is wrapping up ski season. The worlds oldest bike festival, Bike Week has something for everyone. Winter snow gives way to miles of mountain biking and hiking trails as well as meadows full of wildflowers. Don’t miss the Wildflower Festival right here in the Wildflower Capital of Colorado. I highly recommend renting a bike at any one of the local bike shops and hitting the miles of spectacular single track.
