One of the most beautiful single track bike rides in the world. Coming down from the back side of Maroon Bells, the vistas of the valley are breathtaking! And the flowers in the summer are so big, you think you are in the Land of the Giants!

Just an amazing climb and you feel accomplished when you get to there. 10,707 feet elevation and when you ride a mountain bike from the small town of Gothic up to Schofield pass the thrill of knowing you are almost on trail 401 and headed back down. Epic ride!

July 2014 - The 401 trailhead is located at the top of Schofield Pass. This trail is quite popular among mountain bikers for a good reason--the surrounding mountains and wildflowers are breathtakingly beautiful! The 401 trail is a medium-hard trail. I found the hardest parts to be the uphill and the altitude. The first ~45 minutes of single track are... More

We traveled from Crested Butte over Kebler pass, all the way to Marble, CO, and tried to negotiate Schofiled Pass. We had a Honda Pilot which soon overheated, so we had to turn around. Later in the week, we started up the other side from Gothic, above Crested Butte. We did not figure we would go all the way, although... More

Did the first 3 miles at peak wildflower season - spectacular! In September I plan to do the entire trail from Aspen to Crested Butte, so this was an excellent appetizer!

So, I read all the reviews and still couldn't figure out if we could actually drive to the pass. I went this way today an am writing to clarify. The road beyond Gothic, the "ghost town" is unpaved, but in the summer, on a dry day, is perfectly drive able in a regular car (we had a Chevy Captiva). There... More

Beautiful back country scenery and an exciting drive to get to the pass. Amazing views and the streams were running full from a great snow season. We spent the afternoon by a waterfall on the east fork of the south fork of the Crystal River. Great Experience and a wonderful time with very good friends. Something to always remember.

It is hard to find a prettier place. This is a start (or end) to one of the greatest hikes in Colorado...Crested Butte to Aspen. I've been here many times and never tire of the drive or the views. I look forward to it every year.
