The Peaks Trail is an extremely well known trail in Breckenridge. Located at up Ski Hill Road right beside Grand Lodge on Peak 7 you will find biking and hiking for all. This 15.6 miles trail stretches from Breckenridge to Frisco. There are uphills, technical sections and some easy flat sections. You can do the whole trail or just go out for a shorter hike. Either route will provide great views, good activity and maybe even some wildlife spotting.
