This trail was great for my teenage son and our dogs. The path was very snowed over but we could still safely follow and it was marked along the trees as well. We walked as long as we felt good and then turned around and...More

We went snowshoeing on this trail with a 2 yr old and 6 month old in kid carriers. You have to cross a ski trail near Beaver Run which can be difficult depending on how busy the resort is that day, but doable. It is...More

We hiked this our first full day in Breckenridge. It's a perfect first hike. Not too strenuous, lovely views, tons of cute chipmunks to entertain you on your way.

This is a classic mountain trail through the woods along a stream and adjacent meadow. We’re in our mid-60s and were able to handle it with no problem, but we had acclimated to the altitude before tackling it. We did not attempt to hike the...More

Being from Florida, we didn't know how our bodies would adapt to the altitude so we didn't attempt any of the big hikes we wanted to. So we looked for moderate hikes and the Burro Trail was listed. We hiked the full 6 miles but...More

The Burro Trail is considered an "easy" hike. It is a good location, being near downtown Breckenridge. We stopped at the Crepe's truck on the square and bought a gatorade for $2 each and then walked toward the trail. The trail is heavily wooded, so...More

The Burro Trail provides a great hike near downtown Breckenridge. The trailhead is only about 1/3 of a mile from Main St. Even though you are close to town you feel like you are out in the wilderness. It is heavily wooded so there are...More

We hiked this trail the night we arrived in Breckenridge, and although I was having a few difficulties breathing due to the altitude, this trail was easy/short enough, that I was still able to complete it. My youngest daughter loved the little stream that ran...More
