Description

Side Door connects Prospect Trail GH 41, Minnie Mine Trail and Prospect Hill Road GH 38.

The trail begins at the apex of Prospect Hill Road at a timber barrier. The trail is easy to follow and features banked switchbacks, berms and gap features.

There a several vistas along the route offering stunning views of the Breckenridge Ski Area and southern Ten Mile Range, Mt. Guyot, Mt. Baldy, etc.

The lower downhill half of the trail follows an historic mining road, and is a bit steeper, and less winding than the upper downhill section. The bottom section (lower side door (LSD)) is a completely different trail: dead flat, running from Minnie Mine to Prospect Trail.
