Crested Butte Neighborhood Spotlight: Riverbend
Located just a mile from Crested Butte, Riverbend offers expansive views of the surrounding mountains, especially Whetstone Mountain. Despite the proximity to town, Riverbend remains a small and quiet neighborhood. A cross-country ski track connects Riverbend to Crested Butte in the wintertime, while the Deli trail (widened in late fall, 2014) connects Riverbend to Crested Butte for bikers and hikers in the summertime. Hikers and bikers will also find ample opportunities for recreation in the nearby Brush Creek valley. Private Slate River fishing rights are another recreational opportunity for Riverbend residents. The views from Riverbend are something special, from the cliffs of Crested Butte to the big bowls of Whetstone Mountain to all the peaks of Paradise Divide and Mount Emmons.
A conservation easement ensures that many of these views will last into the future. A “subdivision within a subdivision”, Slate River Estates, is also in Riverbend. Riverbend real estate spans a wide variety of property for sale, from empty lots ready to build on, to inexpensive condominium complexes, to high-end luxury homes.
