Short connection adjacent to Gold Run Road near the Breckenridge Golf Course

Don Leinweber

Overview

Features: -none-

Description

Discovery Ridge trail connects paved Gold Run Road, to dirt Gold Run Road. Access is south of a golf cart crossing, 0.4 miles from the intersection of Tiger Road and Gold Run Road. Official Town of Breckenridge mapping has the trail extending all the way to Tiger Road; however the section adjacent to the pavement is constructed from crusher fine gravel, and can be quite loose.

The trail climbs initially through a few switchbacks adjacent to the golf course before reaching a flume. This flume section is all that remains of an original trail network that existed in the area prior to the construction of the Highlands Subdivision, and third 9 of the golf course.

Follow the flume west, up to and across Discovery Hill Drive. The trail continues through a few more switchbacks before topping out. Pass ZL Trail in a switchback on the descent back to Gold Run Road, which is the original dirt roadway at this location. Turn right, and then left at a post on the south side of the road and descend to pavement.

Turn left to access Tom's Baby trail at the dead end of the road. There is also a trailhead parking area at this dead end.
