Description

From the end of Lower Westside, Middle Westside ascends lazily as it pops in and out of the trees on open meadows. This is one of my favorite trails heading up Mt. Crested Butte as it places you in one of the densest aspen groves on the mountain; it feels like you're in a fairytale!

After popping in and out of the trees a few more times, the trail terminates at Silver Queen Road.

Flora & Fauna

Aspens galore!
