Crested Butte Dream Home Hiking Biking Nordic Access
The Crested Butte area offers access to hundreds of miles of backcountry hiking and biking in the summer, and recreational access in the winter. The option to “hike right out your back door” appeals to many people, and getting onto a trail quickly and easily is a nice amenity, especially with guests. This eliminates the need to pile everyone into a vehicle (or two) and drive to the trailhead. You will probably still do this because there are so many trails to explore, but like ski-in/out, it reduces the number of moving parts.
It is not uncommon for developments or subdivisions to be adjacent or “below” National Forest land with easy access to this land for the owners in the subdivision, but not the general public. Examples of some of the shared ranch subdivisions in Crested Butte like this are: Wilder on the Taylor, The Reserve, Danni Ranch, Red Mountain Ranch, Whetstone Mountain Ranch. Check to see if there is public access or easements through the development for access.

Many trails or dirt roads that you hike or bike on in the summer may offer great options for Nordic skiing in the winter. If the trail is groomed, then both classic Nordic (cross country) skiing as well as skate skiing will be options. It is nice to be able to hike or ski back to the house if the temperatures drop and you or your guests are tired or cold.
