Roadway:
The first 2/3 of the climb is an excellently maintained biking/walking path. It's a concrete "sidewalk" surface, but free of all debris. The last 2 miles are on an asphalt road going up the ski slopes. 

Parking:
Plenty of parking in downtown Crested Butte. If you're doing this climb, you're most likely staying up in the ski village or down in the town, both places give easy access to this climb. 
The climb begins and ends in populated ski towns

We strongly recommend some of the other more famous climbs in the area, including Cottonwood PassSlumgulion Pass, and Independence Pass East, all within a relatively short drive away. 

Crested Butte is isolated, but one of the most peaceful mountain towns in Colorado. Besides skiing, the town is best known for its world-class mountain biking, including the 401 Trail Loop, the most famous mtb trail in Colorado. You can find excellent hotels here as well as VRBOs.
