마운트 크래스티드 뷰트에서 보는 크래스티드 뷰트 정상

크래스티드 뷰트 (Crested Butte) 콜로라도 주 (Colorado)의 거니슨 카운티 (Gunnison County) 에 위치한 레져/관광 타운이다. 예전에는 광산 타운이였으나 다른 많은 콜로라도 주의 타운들 처럼 현재는 스키, 산악자전거를 비롯한 야외 레져 활동의 타운으로 편환되어서 "the last great Colorado ski town"로 불리운다. 또한 콜로라도 주의회에서는 크래스티드 뷰트를 야생화의 주도 (the wildflower capital of Colorado)로 지명하였다.

크래스티드 뷰트의 북쪽 약 5 마일에는 마운트 크래스티드 뷰트 (Mt. Crested Butte)라는 콘도/스키장으로 이루어진 타운이있다.

애스핀 숲과 Snodgrass 싱글트랙

시작점: 고딕 로드 (Gothic Road)가 비포장으로 바뀌는 지점의 왼쪽에 주차공간과 등산로 시작점이 있다. 또는 루프 코스로 묵는 호텔에서 시작할 수도 있다.

10 마일 정도 루프 코스로 시간이 많이 없을때 좋은 코스이다. 짧지만 숲으로 (Snodgrass) 들어가서 빽빽한 애스핀 나무들 사이로 즐기는 2 마일 정도의 나이스 싱글트랙 다운힐이 바이커들을 즐겁게 하여준다.

  • 마운틴 크래스티드 뷰트 한 콘도에서 시작한 루프

  3. 싱글트랙 삼거리에서 왼쪽으로, 그리고 1 마일 오르니 개이트
  4. 개이트에서 조금 오른후 나이스 다운힐 시작; 약 2 마일 정도, 아름다운 나무들 사이로 very very nice sigle track
  5. 개이트 (철사로 막혀있는) 를 나와서 싱글트랙을 약 1 마일 내려가니 비포장도로 (Washington Gulch Road)
  6. 이도로에서 좌회전하여 조금오른후 계속내려옴, 도로는 포장도로로 바뀌고 꽤 빨른 속도로 내려올 수 있음
  7. 도로는 고딕 로드를 만나고 여기서 좌회전하여 콘도로 영차영차 1 마일 오름

등산 (하이킹)

쿠퍼크릭 트래일에서보는 Judd Falls 폭포

쿠퍼크릭 트래일 (Copper Creek Trail)

시작점: 고딕 (Gothic)의 작은 다운타운을 지나 1/2 마일, 오른쪽에 주차공간.

경사가 심하지 않은 트래일로 사시나무와 돌로 되어있는 산책길을 1 마일 가면 Judd Falls 폭포가 나온다. 이 곳에서 조금만 가면 옆으로 주디 폭포에 접근하는 곳이 나와서 우리 아이들은 밑으로 내려가 잠시 통나무다리를 두팔을 벌리고 오며갔다. 잠시 물가에서 놀다가 올라와 4 마일 가면 Copper Lake 호수 그리고 더 많이 많이 가면 애스핀 (Aspin) 까지 이어진다고 한다. 이 길은 늦은 봄부터 여름에 야생화로 절경을 이룬다. 경사가 많이 없지만 고도가 높아 금방 피로를 느낀다. 하이커들의 컨디션에 따라 하이킹 거리를 정한다.
