So much variety on this trail, fun rollers that can be turned into jumps. Water bars that can be dropped. Addictive tech both up and downhill. Great views and a decent workout. You probably wanna ride this from the top with a shuttle if you don’t love riding on bike paths.

Huge clear cuts around much of the trail. Very sad as it has changed the character of the trail drastically

Congrats forester service, you succeeded in continuing your mission by sanitizing the Breck size even further with the lame reroute around the punchy climbs. Those areas didn’t even have drainage issues. Why don’t you go fix the big big areas with actual drainage issues on the frisco side instead of “fixing” non issues.

This is a nice trail with a little bit of everything. Starting at Peak 7 the trail is more technical with roots and rocks. The middle section is relatively flat with nice flowing rollers. The end of the trail near Frisco is a mild decent over mixed terrain. This trail is fairly heavily trafficked by hikers. I’m not sure how this was ever voted the best trail in Summit unless it was based strictly on the amount of use.

From breck to Frisco. A bit of a schizo trail in terms of grade and surface and habitat; lots of punchy climbs and descents, in and out of the woods, smooth then rocky then rooty, dry then loam then springs then loose. At some point a sustained descent sets in and its fast and furious in the beat way. Towards the end you’ll find an unreasonable amount of wandering tourists.

Do not attempt to ride this trail from south to north starting at Spruce Creek road. It is impossible to ride and brutally steep. We made it to the intersection of Wheeler and Crystal Lake road and decided to turn around.

Brutally steep in places (even pushing the bike was a challenge at times), but worth the effort. The views are unbelievable. I rode this uphill and descended the Copper Mountain side. I felt this direction made the most sense and was the most fun.

This is a fun climb up and a rowdy and fast descent down. It has stream crossings, lots of baby-head rocks and loamy turns. There was a fire in this area two years ago, so there are lots of downed trees, but nothing on the trail itself. I would recommend climbing up Peaks Trail, and turning right onto this trail. Lots of fun to descend- you can double up the closely spaced water bars, all while getting a great view of the surrounding mountains.

A fun trail with roots, rocks and occasional puddles caused by natural springs. This trail has a lot of climbing if you are coming up from Frisco, but the descent is well worth it. You can ride this trail as a out and back , or you can go all the way through and down to Breck. Locals recommend this trail, and I can see why. Peaks Trail has won the Best Trail in Frisco twice in a row in the Best of Summit (2017 and 201Cool . It has rocks, roots and log drops. Add in plenty of loam and you have a classic mountain bike trail that has been cherished through the years.

Fabulous trail that locals recommend. This is a fun, flowy trail with a mix of moderate climbs, rock gardens, and easy cruiser sections where you can take in the amazing scenery. If you can't do a big loop, have a friend shuttle you to the trailhead at Breck. It is 2:1 downhill to Frisco. Add on Hattie's at the end in Frisco for a little more edgy challenge.

I started on the Peaks trail in Breck and then made my way up Miners Creek. The trail is chunky and pretty steep. Much of the area had a fire recently, which provides a change in scenery and gorgeous views. Bring your climbing legs!

FYI to users, fire was a little over two years ago. Obviously some sensitive soils, growth is being seen this year. Excited to see that piece come back to life.

I rode this as a loop, riding the rec path from Breck and climbing from Frisco ending with a downhill through the resort to the 4 o'clock freeride park. While a fun

I guess the rest of my comment got eaten.

Continuing ....

While a fun ride, most of the heavy lifting was during the ascent from Frisco, and I couldn't help but wish that I had started at the top in Breck to come down as the descent would have been quite a bit more fun than wayfinding back down the hill from Breck's Ski resort,

An enjoyable ride that's not too technical. Although the area closest to Breckinridge is a very rocky and tree rooted trail best suited for a full suspension bike. Heading from Breckinridge to Frisco is more descending than ascending. Be prepared for a good climb as you leave Frisco back to Breckinridge.

Very scenic. Lots of pushing, especially if you come from sea level.
