A must when in Breckenridge (in summer)
Aug 2020
My husband and I rented ebikes from Mountain Wave yesterday and started out on this trail. It wasn't a hard bike ride (though we clocked in at 24 miles). We stopped for a drink and an appetizer in Frisco (cute town) and headed back. It is gorgeous with many great views on the ride.

great week in the mountains

This trail was recommended by several mountain bike riders that I met in Breckenridge. Its about 8 miles from peak 8 in Breckenridge to Frisco where you can take the free Summit Stage bus back to Breckenridge. Its a beautiful trail, don't be surprised if you come across wildlife..We saw a cow moose abut 20 yards away from the trail

3+ relaxing hours along streams - one of our favorites
Aug 2019 • Couples
Going from the Peak 7 trailhead in Breckenridge to Frisco you gain 500 feet of altitude - never strenuous - along streams and often with beautiful views of the Highlands, Keystone Ranch and the Breckenridge Golf course. Going back you gain 1,450 feet - never really steep or demanding - we loved every minute of this hike. It took us 3 hours and 15 minutes going up from Frisco and a little less the other direction. We think this is a “must do” when in Summit County.

One of Colorado's original must ride mountain bike routes.

The Peaks Trail was one of the first must do rides in the early days of mountain biking and remains a beautiful spin through the subalpine forest to this day.

Great hike if you're staying at one of the resorts on Peak 7
Sep 2018
This hike is so convenient to the resorts on Peak 8 and 7 but especially nice for those staying at Grand Lodge. I didn't want the whole way but turned around after 1.5 hours. It was beautiful and peaceful. Only saw a few mountain bikers and on the way back a handful of hikers some of which were kids. From Breck it's a pretty easy incline with some bridges to cross. But watch out for random roots sticking out of the ground or you might trip.

Beautiful hike. Long, but not difficult.
Sep 2018 • Solo
I walked from Frisco to Breckenridge one day, stayed the night in Breck, then walked back the next. It's a beautiful hike with varied terrain, some up and down, but nothing really hard. It took me about 4 1/2 hours in each direction.

There are a lot of logs along the trail in some areas. It looks kind of devastated sometimes. I assume they are cutting out the beetle kill and that eventually it will look normal again.

Be aware that in the fall they stop running the gondola that goes to the trailhead from Breck. I bummed a ride, then found there are frequent, free buses ;-). Peak Seven on the Ski Hill Road bus is the stop for the trailhead.

Top mountain bike trails in Colorado.

A really beautiful and surprisingly technical trail. It is very crowded on weekends and holidays. Bikes should yield to hikers, but that doesn't always happen. It is easier to go Breck to Frisco, but either way is going to test your climbing and bike handling skills.

Disappointing
Sep 2018 • Family
We heard and read this was a great trail to see fall color. We hiked about a third of it round trip from Peak 7 and I must say you can see far more color walking down main street in Breck! A nice hike other than that.

Great hike from Breckenridge to Frisco. Can travel all the way and return by bus or go out and back as far as you want.
