Overview

Quick climbs, twisty downhill singletrack, dense forest, and high peaks make this a simple, go-to route. Try it on a rigid or gravel bike for more of a challenge. It's also great in the winter on a fat bike.

Description

Begin the ride by parking in one of the three lots on the backside of Frisco, near the Temple Trail. Proceed toward the Copper to Frisco Bike Path. Ride up the path until you reach Wheeler Junction and the Wheeler Trail / CT - Segment 7: Miner's Creek Trail.

The rides most challenging portion, and largest climb, begins around mile eight at Wheeler Junction and the beginning of the Wheeler Trail. Push through!

After the four-mile climb (first on the Wheeler Trail/Miner's Creek and then continuing on Miner's Creek), you'll be rewarded with nearly continuous downhill singletrack for the rest of the ride, and some amazing peak views. Consider a break around Peak 6 before starting a long descent.

Turn north on the Peaks Trail, which will take you back to the parking lot in Frisco.
