I guess some landowner decided to block access on this trail. Too bad this was a good way to get to the Ice rink from the Sawmill. I wish they would post signs on both ends letting you know that it is no longer a through trail.

Not closed. Just signs that say “private property. Please stay on trail”

It would be really helpful to mark the trail map with a note on the location of the closure. I can't remember where it is.

Yes. This trail is Blocked off. Per a conversation with Breck Open Space Trails the private landowner is within their rights to close the trail
Bummer. This was a good trail.

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.

Great flow trail through beautiful trees, but unfortunately verry popular with hikers - passed close to 100 people on one descent so never got to ride the trail as well as it deserves.

Ride it downhill. The map shows it as an uphill trail starting at the base. But it’s meant to be a downhill trail. Lots of banks and jumps built onto the trail along the way. Super fun.

Trail Barney Ford
This is generally a downhill trail. While it's technically a 2-way trail, biking up Barney Ford is generally frowned upon unless it's for a competition. The preferred route up is Juniata!! You will get some not great looks climbing BF.

Beginning Nightmare on Baldy from the Sally Barber mine, it looks extremely steep and daunting -- especially if you've been climbing a lot already. Once you get past the first 100 feet or so, though, it becomes a shady and not-so-strenuous spin up the mtn to more varied downhill options. Fun trail!

Trail Jody's Loop
A great old school XC Loop that is whip fast and contains beautiful views of the Lake. The trail is mostly flat, and can be rocky and footy in areas. This is a great trail that has amazing colors in the fall, thanks to the surrounding aspen trees.

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.

Short, but one of the highest fun factors in the area. Super fast and flowy with switchbacks and a few jumps. Highly recommended. This trail should be *downhill only.*

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.

Fun single track loop, although maybe a tad technical to be labeled a green trail. Just to help others be aware of bringing less experienced riders with them.

Great trail up and down! I climbed it on the way to sidedoor, and it has great views and is a manageable climb. I also came back down it, and it flows well and has plenty of jumps to keep your smile going and the stoke high!

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.
