A looped ride from town utilizing some of the finest area trails.


E-Bikes Unknown

Features -none-

Barney Flow and B-Line trails are downhill only options if riding this loop CW.


This is a looped ride that can be ridden from town and offers some of the best new and old singletrack Breckenridge has to offer. This ride can be lengthened by incorporating any of a myriad of adjacent trails into the loop.

The loop is excellent CW or CCW.


Described in the counterclockwise direction:

From Carter Park in the southwest corner of Breckenridge, climb Carter Park switchbacks to Moonstone Trail. Climb Moonstone Trail to Moonstone Road and cross to Barney Ford. Climb halfway up Barney Ford to V3 on the left in a switchback. Descend V3 to B&B Trail. Turn left and descend to the trailhead.

Cross French Creek Road to X10U8 and climb to Minnie Mine Trail. Turn left and ride west on Minnie Mine to Side Door. Continue west on Side Door to Prospect Trail. Veer right and uphill at this Y-intersection. Ride through a clearcut to the intersection of Prospect Hill Road.

Go straight (west) on Prospect Hill Road and top out at the toe of a mine waste area. Descend, passing Extension Mill Road on the right to a paved roadway (Western Sky Ranch Road) go left on the pavement 1/4 mile to the Western Sky trail on the right.

Climb Western Sky up to a high point, then descend to Gold Run Road. Ride north on Gold Run and look for the continuation of Western Sky on the right after the road transitions from pavement to dirt. Climb briefly and descend to Fall Classic Trail near the top of Slalom. Turn left, cross Gold Run Road and descend Slalom.

Turn right at the bottom of Slalom (or continue on the Upper Flume Trail to the end of the ride) onto Upper Flume Trail. Ride east on the Upper Flume Trail to the Middle Flume Trail. Descend Middle Flume Trail past Tom's Baby, then across a paved road (Preston Way) continuing to the actual flume.

Turn left on the pavement and climb to the Lower Flume Trail at the intersection of Barney Ford Drive. Ride the Lower Flume Trail, crossing the pavement once more to Huron Road and the end of the GPX file. Turn right and descend back to town.
