Italian Creek is a challenging trail that connects Cement Creek, just south of Crested Butte, to the Taylor Park area. Originally built in the 1880s, this trail was originally created as a connector trail between Taylor Park and Crested Butte, two prevalent mining towns at the time. This trail has quite a bit of diversity, with the western half of it being mostly in the forest with tight trees and the eastern half being above the treeline, which showcases the high mountain peaks and vistas for which this area is famous. While this is an all-day adventure traversing quintessential Colorado high-country, this route is not for the faint of heart and will test a stock rig.
