This is the ride that started it all in the Crested Butte area. Historical and tough, Pearl Pass is not for the faint of lungs, heart, or legs. There are better “pass rides,” but none take you as high and over such rugged alpine terrain as the Pearl Pass ride does. The riding for the first 12 miles is actually pleasant and takes you up into the Brush Creek drainage. After the last creek crossing, things start to get ugly. The road is extremely rough, rocky, and steep up to the top of the pass. Snow stays on the pass well into July and in some years year-round. With all that said, this is a classic mountain bike tour up into some of Colorado’s most beautiful alpine country. I’ve done this ride three times and I relish this time on my bike in the high country. The views are spectacular; wildflowers light up the steep hillsides. And the feeling you get from doing a ride like this makes all the effort worthwhile. Arrange a shuttle or have someone pick you up in Aspen. Tread: Rough 15.2 miles on four-wheel-drive roads, 6.0 miles on doubletrack, and 17.2 miles on paved roads.
