    There is a real popular trail outside Crested Butte, CO. The name escapes me right now though and my search has came up with nada. Anyone know?

    Pearl pass is a right of passage for extreme mountain bikers.
    It is 30 miles of tough riding. Then you will be 30 miles from your start and no way back. The road from Aspen to Crested Butte is like 100 or more miles long if you don't go over one of the high mountain passes, of which there are several:
    There is..
    Pearl pass
    Scholfield pass
    Gunsight pass
    Reno Divide
    Italian pass
    Devils punchbowl(Holy cow)(people have died on this one)
    And a couple I'm sure I'm missing. This was a heavily mined area 100+ years ago, and there are trails all over those mountains.

    Was the trail pretty crowded when you went?
