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

Don Leinweber

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.
