Pearl Pass Trail

Pearl Pass Trail

Pearl Pass is the most spectacular trail I have ever ridden. Though I have said I thought other trails were the most beautiful I have ever seen I really mean it on this one.  I even like this trail better than the trails in Moab.
 

Pearl Pass ATV Trail

Though the entire trail is beautiful, it is breath taking when you round the corner at the top of the pass and see Montezuma Basin for the first time. 14,265 Castle Peak is in the back ground.

Montezuma Basin

I am nearly ashamed to place these pictures on this web site since they really do no justice to how beautiful this area actually is. As you can see in the picture, the entire time you are in the basin you are riding on Telis Slopes (huge bolder fields).
 

Peral Pass Mountain Bike

Though this trail is only open a few weeks a year due to snow blocking the trail there are many people using it. We saw a few Jeeps, one ATV, five or six motorcycles and many mountain bikers.
     

Aspen ATV Trails

The views coming up to the pass are also beautiful, so plan to bring a camera with plenty of film. Since the trail connects Crested Butte with Aspen you can buy more film in Aspen if you run out.
 

Colorado ATV Trails

As you leave the Crested Butte area the trial starts as an easy dirt road but quickly becomes one of the most difficult rated 4-wheeldrive roads in all of Colorado. The only real problem we had was our bikes lost much needed horse power as the trail got higher and rougher.
     
Pearl Pass Dirtbike Trail

We connected this trail with Taylor Pass and Italian Creek Road to make a loop of about 90 miles. To ride the loop as we did you will have to be street legal because there are a few miles of asphalt you must ride on. The pass is ok for ATVs.

  Pearl Pass Jeep Trail

Not only are there many miles of two track jeep roads in this area, but there are also over 200 miles of single track for Dirt Bike, Mountain Bikes and Hikers called Cement Creek. The Cement Creek area is not open for use by jeeps and ATVs.

Directions: Drive south from Crested Butte for 2 miles and turn left at the Crested Butte Country Club sign, this will change into Brush Creek Road FR738. Follow the main road for a short ways and it will give way to a gravel road. The way to Pearl Pass will be clearly marked. There is a camping area a little ways from were the last picture was taken. You will see it on the right just before you cross a creek and can be easily reached by any car or truck.
