From the Town of Crested Butte: Drive 2 miles south on CO 135 and make a left onto County Road 738 (Brush Creek Road). Continue on another 1.9 miles as pavement turns to dirt and look for the parking lot of the trailhead on your left side.


Brush Creek Road winter use starts just beyond the Brush Creek Trailhead. Make sure to park at the Brush Creek Trailhead and ride down to the actual start of the snow trail. Please don”t park where they county stops plowing the road as you are blocking access to a private drive and ranch.  From where the plowing ends follow the road as far as you wish enjoying views of Teocalli Mountain. This is an out and back trail, turn around where you please and follow the same route back to the car.
