Default Crystal Mill

Have any of you wheeled the trail from Marble up to the Crystal Mill? I'm going to be down in that neck of the woods this weekend and was thinking of taking my family up there. I just wasn't sure of how difficult it might be. We'll be in a 100 series...

Thanks,
Ted

The hard side is Schofield pass from Crested Butte. You wont have any issues coming from Marble.

As Adam said easy from the Marble side. Any stock SUV even Subie could run that stretch.

Easy trip from Marble. Do the whole loop through Lead King Basin, spectacular!!! Few bumps but very easily done in a stock vehicle.

Was up there last weekend. We've gotten lots of rain recently so some mud/puddles on the road in to the mill. Snow over the last few days below treeline.

You won't have any problems in the 100, just bumpy from all the rain we've had. Enjoy, the aspens are still pretty spectacular. McClure pass was also fantastic aspen viewing
