1. Lower Loop Trail
The Lower Loop trail located right outside of town provides easy hiking, and is a great choice for the kids. Enjoy the great outdoors with fresh air, beautiful vistas, and follow the path for great views with a few benches to stop and soak them up.
2. Ride the Silver Queen
A lift on the Silver Queen at Crested Butte Mountain Resort is wonderful and safe experience for kids along with adults. Ride up to 11,875 feet in 7 minutes, while taking in dramatic views of Whetstone Mountain across the valley and the summit of Mt. Crested Butte just ahead. There are a few hiking trail options from the top of the lift including a tough, but rewarding hike to the peak for those up for a challenge.
3. Dance at Concerts
4. Crested Butte Library
The Old Rock Library is a great resource for kid friendly books (of course), but also games, events, and a great place for stories. Scheduled events are posted on their Facebook page.
5. Play by the Water
Head down to the water and cast a line or skip some rocks. Every kid should know how to do these timeless activities.
6. CBMR Adventure Park
Zipline, bungee jump, mini golf, bag jump, and the museum are located at the base of the mountain all summer long! Make it easy for the kids to have a great time by pickup a ticket to the Adventure Park at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
7. Trailhead Children’s Museum
The Trailhead Children’s Museum strives to offer an engaging and dynamic environment that inspires children and families to explore, create and learn together through discovery and play. It’s the perfect place to play!
The museum also just recently moved down to town at the corner of Gothic Ave. and Teocalli Ave. Be sure to stop by!
