Family Friendly Good intermediate trail for the older kids, though there are some technical features that can be challenging.

Description

Illinois Creek is a must to bypass Boreas Pass Road to/from either the Blue River Trail or the bottom of Aspen Alley.

This old-school Breck trail climbs briefly from the intersection with the Blue River Trail, but is mostly downhill to the ice rink after topping out.

The trail is a little technical in the middle section. There is a fork near the midpoint of the trail with Illinois Creek the eastern fork and Southside Trail the western. Either option returns to the ice rink and parking lot.
