Colorado Scenery - Slate Road near Crested Butte
This trail is located north of Crested Butte, Colorado. To get there you take Route 135 north of Crested Butte and turn left onto Slate Road 734. Our book says this is an easy road to negotiate, but we feel otherwise from our limited experience and what we heard along the way.
We had planned on taking the Slate Road/Gothic Road loop, but unfortunately we got a flat on the way up. The people who helped us out were coming down the steep incline we were going up and they said the road gets narrower and rougher the higher you go. We decided it would be best to turn around and go home as we didn't have another spare and didn't want to risk another flat.
