After a handful of challenging hikes in Crested Butte during the Wildflower Festival in mid-July, I picked an easy one Friday, Judd Falls Trail. This short, out-and-back 2.2-mile hike was perfect to get Annie a little exercise before I completed my “on the road” chores such as laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning VANgo and the like.Happy Hiking!
Happy Hiking: Scarp Ridge
Today, during my two-week camping stay in Crested Butte, I hiked Scarp Ridge in the ghost town of Irwin.
Getting to Scarp Ridge Trail
Getting to Scarp Ridge Trail requires driving up a portion of Keebler Pass. The final mile, after Irwin Lake gets a little rocky and steep, but there are no low hanging trees and it is reasonably wide. I read many AllTrails reviews that almost scared me away, but VANgo handled it mightily. I’m glad I went!Happy Hiking!
Happy Hiking: Snodgrass Trail
Wednesday was a day of dreary weather. As a result, I picked a trail I saw as I drove to my Crested Butte campsite off Washington Gulch Road. It turned out to be Snodgrass Trail which initially confused me, as the AllTrails app shows the trailhead off FS 317.Happy Hiking!
