Double Top Trail
No trails library would be complete without a couple of truly EVIL trails. Perhaps the only trail to match "Mt. Thomas" (see under Eagle) in sheer pain and misery would be Crested Butte's notorious Double Top. This 27-mile loop climbs up and over 11,700' Double Top ridge along miles of steep, crumbling singletrack that has been gouged beyond rideability by motorcyclists. This trail, however, is not without its rewards. Those brave enough to take on the ride's over 4000' of climbing are rewarded with one of the most remote and stunning panoramas atop Double Top. ...that and bragging rights to having ridden Crested Butte's (Colorado's?) most challenging trails.
Use 409's trailhead to start. This is where Double Top branches off from 409.
