The Peaks Trail features singletrack trail winding through aspen groves, thick forest, wildflower meadows and creek crossings. Connecting Breckenridge with Frisco, the Peaks Trail hovers between 9000 to 10,500 feet in elevation, offering amazing views of the surrounding mountains and valley.
Riders can choose to ride the Peaks Trail from Frisco to Breckenridge or vice versa. The ride is moderate, but nothing is ever to steep or difficult to navigate. Once in the town of destination, a bus shuttle eases the journey back to the town of origin.
The Peaks Trail is well marked with light blue diamonds, making route finding a cinch. The trail can be crowded with hikers on busy summer days and riders should practice right of way protocol.
Time To Allow:
The Peaks Trail is multi-use so riders may encounter hikers, trail runners and other users and should follow right of way protocol when meeting other groups. The Peaks Trail is located in higher elevation terrain and sudden weather shifts are possible; riders should bring appropriate warm layers in anticipation of this. In addition, riders should be prepared with a stocked repair kit and a first aid kit.
