StoryWalk™

StoryWalk™ is an interactive activity display along the wide path of the Lower Loop trail off Peanut Lake Road. It’s geared towards 3-6-year-olds, and offers a combination of outdoor adventure with an engaging story.

Each summer a new book is chosen to display, and is separated into portions along the trail in order to combine reading, walking and observing the natural surroundings.

StoryWalk™ is brought to you by the Crested Butte Land Trust and the Crested Butte Old Rock Library.

The StoryWalk™ Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition (VBPC) and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

Letterboxing (Summer only)

Letterboxing is an intriguing outdoor pursuit combining hiking, artistry, and detective work. 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 land parcels preserved by the Crested Butte Land Trust.

The letterboxing treasure hunt is perfect for kids ages 6 and up. Print out your passport for free online. Or pick up a passport and clues at the Land Trust office at 308 Third Street, the Crested Butte 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!

Each season, get ready to follow new clues as we hide them in new locations!
