The Upper Flume Trail
is most easily accessible from the Lower Flume Trail
at the southern end of the trail. The Lower Flume Trail
trailhead is located at the Summit County Road Facility, just past the recycling center on the north side of SCR 450 (Huron Road) approximately 1/4 mile east of the 7-Eleven. There is no parking at the trailhead. Park at the Breckenridge Recreation Center, or in Town.
Climb the Lower Flume Trail
from the trailhead to the flume. After 100 feet the Upper Flume Trail
begins on the right. The Trail begins with a steep climb through a switchback, then transitions to a milder 1/2 mile climb paralleling Forest Hills Drive before reaching the flume.
The trail follows the flume for 2 miles, passing Mike's Trail
on the left at mile 1.5 and crossing Golden Age Drive at mile 1.8. Trail begins a mild climb away from the flume passing Slalom
Singletrack Trail on the right at mile 2.4, and the Middle Flume Trail
on the left at mile 2.8. Shortly after the Middle Flume Trail
junction the trail rejoins the flume and continues another 1/2 mile to its terminus on the gravel Gold Run Road
