Rocky and steep, really difficult to climb because loose, narrow and extended climb. Downhill is rowdy and fast, but bring your kidney belt and maybe some wrist supports for all the micro bumps and you feel like you are descending forever.

      Between Miners Creek Road and Peaks trail there is still a tiny bit of snow left above the burn but it's basically good. Trail is seeing traffic...

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

       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.
