Trail Lower Flume
Physically this is an easy trail with little climbing, BUT technically it should be rated blue. I see too many beginner bikers on this trail terrified. It is narrow, patches of rocks with a couple steep rollers. Trailsfork - who decides these ratings?

Some great portions, but lots of fire roads. Pick off the good stuff and find other connectors.

Great views, easy traversing trail perched on a steep ridge side with a sense of exposure.

Trail Slalom
It is a great climb, and not steep other than two very short pitches near the top. Great connector to fall classic

there are a lot of down trees that makes the downhill kind of boring... aside of that is a nice ride!

Skip this route. Way more fire road riding than single track. Not the best of Breck,

Trail Slalom
This is generally a downhill trail. While it's technically a 2-way trail, biking up slalom is generally frowned upon unless it's for a comp. The preferred route up is Upper Flume to Gold Run Gulch Rd.

s/o to the Breck trail crew for clearing that thing off right before I rode it. Super fun trail!

Who wouldn't like bike optimized, downhill only berms, turns and jumps? Really well done, super fun. Main line rollable but lots of opportunities for bigger air and doubles.

just rode the trail. It was re built. It now features tabletop jumps, hips, wooden features and it’s now downhill only. 10/10 would recommend riding up backdoor and down sidedoor

A flow trail that did not exactly meet expectation. Its a shame as it could have been a great trail, but there are alot of grade reversals that kill your speed and flow.

It was just rebuilt last summer. Try it again. Hands down one of the best non-park DH trails in Colorado, now.
