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

This hike is wonderful if you want a mountain hiking experience but don't want to do too much elevation. You can post a car in Frisco, take the free Summit Stage bus back to the gondola in Breckenridge, take the Gondola up, and then pick up the trail on the other side of the hotel and walk all the way...

The Peaks Trail hugs the 10,000 foot line on a topo map. The trailhead is just east of Peak 7 base on Ski Hill road. It's popular, you may struggle to find parking. As you're below treeline you don't usually have a 'view', but that's not why I hike this trail--and it's one of my favorites. After a lot of... More

This is a wonderful trail. Leave your car at the base. Ride the Gondola up to Peak 7 (2nd to last stop) and walk two blocks to the other side of the Lodges at Peak 7 for the trail head. When the concrete stops and dirt road starts...there's the trail head. It's mostly downhill from Breck to Frisco. 7.79 miles.... More

This is a very accessible trail with good views of the town of Breckenridge and the surrounding mountains. It can be busy with mountain bikes in the summer, but it is a nice moderate trail that runs from Frisco to Breckenridge, with other access points along the way.

We arrived Breckenridge Saturday afternoon. Since it was early afternoon we thought it was a little too late to hit the slopes. Instead we decided to go snow shoeing instead. Fortunately for us, our niece lives in Breck and we were able to borrow her golden retriever to hike with us. It was a great hike, were we met many... More

I have skied this trail numerous times and it is wise to make sure you do it after a good snow fall...start from the Breckenridge side and ski up a few miles and then down into Frisco..Best to be dropped off and picked up or two cars...Allow 4-5hours depending on your speed and snow conditions
