The Peaks Trail
Another must if you’re staying on the mountain of Breckenridge, especially Peak 7 or 8. This trail travels through a dense forest with little views of mountain peaks, but the gentle grade, stream crossings, and particularly tall trees lining the trail make it highly desirable. You can take this trail all the way to Frisco’s Zach’s Stop Trailhead from Peak 7, (or vice versa,) however with younger kids we don’t recommend this, as it is 7.8 miles one way. With older kids, it might be a fun hike to Frisco for ice cream, and then take the free Summit Stage bus back to Breck. This is a very popular trail with mountain bikers, so be cautious and keep your group close together, especially around corners.
