Peaks Trail, Frisco Colorado
Distance: 8 miles one way
Rating: Intermediate to Advanced
Elevation: 931 ft ascent and 1,838 ft descent
Season: June through September
Frisco is surrounded on 3 sides by National Forest (75% of Summit County is public land) and it takes locals years to bike it all so you will never be bored. The Peaks trail is one of the most well-known mountain biking trails in Summit county, but it’s a good hike as well. This legendary stretch of mostly blue singletrack trail that connects Breckenridge to Frisco is a popular trail for good reasons. Explore rolling forested trails with lots of rocks, roots, climbs, and some killer downhill. The trail is cut out of pine and aspen trees, and at times will include incredible views of the surrounding mountains. This trail will be ridden with a shuttle to Breckenridge to enjoy the mostly downhill route back, which has a bit of uphill feel at the start, and is the most way Summit locals ride this legendary stretch. This is classic Summit County singletrack, from a rocky and rooty, to more flowy and speedy singletrack style of trail.
