Area Info

Crested Butte is the official wildflower capital of Colorado, a Registered National Historic District, and location of Colorado state records for rainbow, brown and lake trout and Kokanee salmon; to name just a few of our major attractions. 
Our epic mountain biking, horseback riding, boating and fishing, rafting, kayaking, hiking and camping, museums, the arts and over 65 restaurants, valley wide, offer the best of Colorado all in one destination.

Crested Butte is located in the very heart of the Rocky Mountains in Southwest Colorado just one hour from Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, 3 hours 20 minutes from The Great Sand Dunes National Park and 4.5 hours from Mesa Verde National Park. A great hub location to see these national treasures!
