Peaks Trail #45

This is a one way trail that starts from either the town of Frisco or Breckenridge. The trail climbs in and out of numerous drainages for its’ entire length staying mostly in the lodgepole pine forest along with some aspen, spruce and fir forests. Most of the lodgepole pine trees are of the same age and provide ground cover and/or forage for wildlife in the area. You will cross some small clearings which were harvested in 1988. These trees were cut to increase the wildlife habitat and to improve the health of the forest by creating age and species diversity, thereby reducing the fire danger. Since the grade from Breckenridge toward Frisco is generally downhill, many people travel this direction and ride the free Summit Stage Bus back to Breckenridge.
