Peaks Trail

Shuttle • 10 mi • 0 ft

The Peaks Trail is a fun trail that links the two Colorado mountain towns of Breckenridge and Frisco over a 10-mile stretch that skirts the eastern slopes of the Tenmile Range. Although the trail can be done from both directions, the most popular route is to begin in Breckenridge and finish in Frisco. Even though the distance seems a little long for the advanced beginner or intermediate snowshoer or skier, the route is generally flat and has some nice downhill trekking or skiing sections. It’s also a very popular route for many winter users who don’t want to partake in a full day of skiing or snowshoeing. Whenever they feel they’ve had enough of a workout, they can return to the trailhead at Breckenridge. If you want to trek or ski all the way from one town to the other, you can park a shuttle car. Or if you’d rather, there is free public transportation between Breckenridge and Frisco on the Summit Stage. Surface quality: Ungroomed but usually well tracked by skiers and snowshoers. Avalanche danger: Low.

Very nice trail, especially the middle bit, which was out of range of most half-day hikers. I'm a beginner/intermediate XC skier and did the trail in about 2.5 hours. The drop into Frisco was a bit icy and torn up by snowshoers, so keep your eyes open.
