Letterboxing

It’s Letterboxing season!

Letterboxing is an intriguing outdoor pursuit combining hiking, artistry, and detective work. The letterboxing treasure hunt is perfect for kids ages 6 and up. Pick up a passport and clues ($5) at the Land Trust office at 308 Third Street, the Mountain Heritage Museum, the Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce, or the Old Rock Community Library! The clues will take you on an adventure to find hidden stamps. See if you can collect all of the stamps in your passport this summer!

Get ready to follow new clues. We’ve hidden letterboxes in new spots on each property. We’ve also hidden letterboxes on our newest Slate River Valley property, located across the river from Gunsight Bridge.

The following letterboxes are now in hiding:

Woods Walk

Lower Loop

Washington Gulch

Lower Loop 2

New Slate River property (Gunsight Connector Trail)

Lupine Trail

Happy hunting!

Local artists teamed up to create stamps unique to our beautiful valley. Highlighting the many uses of Land Trust properties, the stamps depict images of ranching, wildlife, and mountain biking as well as our valley’s iconic landscapes.

Dating back more than 150 years, this “hike-and-seek” adventure provides exciting goals for anyone who likes a quest. Letterboxing offers an outdoor activity to share with family and friends and a wonderful way to connect with the numerous beautiful parcels preserved by the Crested Butte Land Trust.
