We took the 1.5 hour trail ride through Breckenridge stables during our stay. The views were amazing, our trail guides were so informed and it was laid back .I would recommend this ride as a nice break in the action.

We hiked from Peak 7 to Frisco on Peak Trail and enjoyed it immensely. We stopped at our favorite restaurant , Butterhorn Bakery and Deli, for lunch. Can't beat that combination.

I ran an out and back from the Breckenridge nordic center to the top of the ridge between Breck and Copper Mountain. The views were absolutely spectacular once I got about 11k in elevation. Total mileage was just under 26. The Peaks trail itself was nice, in the woods, mellow. I was on the Peaks trail for about 12 miles... More

We run the trail from Breckenridge halfway and back. It was really enjoyable in the shaded forest. Some parts where rocky and tecnicaly moderate. The singel track is large enough for bikers, strollers and runners. Wish we could have made it to Frisco and taken the shuttle back, but we had not the time.

We hiked the Peaks Trail from Breckenridge to Frisco during our recent family vacation, July 2014. It came about somewhat by accident. We were planning on hiking to the summit of Quandary Peak on this particular morning but woke up to lightning, thunder and showers. The storms pretty well dissipated by 8:00 AM but it was too late to start... More

This hike is definitely tops the list in Summit County for views of the 10 mile range. It's about 9 miles from Breck to Frisco. Park at the Gondola and take it to Peak 7, then walk just past the lodge (North) and you'll see the trail head. Once you get to Frisco, just jump on the free bus back... More

From the Peak 8 Base trailhead this trail is up and down for a few miles before it's steadily increases in altitude. If you're hiking you will encounter mountain bikers for that reason. But everyone "shares the road" in an amenable manner, on each hike we've made there over the years.

A great trail with several branching trails. We took the young grandkids, and it wasn't too difficult for them. There are several streams along the route--varied terrain, including a lot of forest.

Instead of skiing, I decided to snowshoe the Peaks Trail from Breckenridge to Frisco. It was a beautiful day and the flatness/slow descent at least made it seem like it wasn't that challenging. However, being sore for 2 days afterwards proved that the 12(ish) mile hike was in fact a good workout! They say it's 10 miles but that doesn't... More

I am an intermediate biker and absolutely loved this trail. I live in FL so this provided a physically challenging (due to the HUGE elevation change), scenic and fun trail. It took about 2 hours to reach Frisco. If you take the trail, you may want to catch a shuttle back to Breckenridge - the trail isn't as fun going... More
