Crested Butte Scenic Drives

In Less Sweat, Summer & Fall by

Enjoy the stunning vistas from the comfort of your own car. Taking a drive can allow you to catch more colors, views, and scenery if your stay is brief. 4 wheel drive is not required for any of these trips, but cameras are certainly recommended. Keep in mind many of these routes are closed in the winter and if you venture off the beaten path, the road may get increasingly rough.
