Mountain Biking

There’s a good reason why one of the most prestigious mountain bike races in North America, the Breck Epic, calls Breckenridge home – no, it’s not just the convenience of the name. Breck residents are lucky to have more than 50 miles of a sprawling trail network in their backyard and the Breck Epic takes advantage of this. A noteworthy section of this network is the famed Colorado Trail, Colorado's premier long distance trail that stretches almost 500 miles from Denver to Durango, runs through Breckenridge and winds through the Swan River Valley.

No matter if you are interested in a mild three-mile, progressive 10-mile, challenging 20-mile or, bless your heart, a 50-mile haul of a ride – your legs and lungs will be the only thing holding you back. We’ve got the dirt path to back you up. For experienced riders, check out our favorite moderate and difficult rides.

Named one of the top 10 great places to take the kids on a bike ride by USA Today, the Town of Breckenridge is continuously expanding and improving its trail system and opening up miles of dirt roads and maintained trails for mountain bikers at every level. For novice riders, check out the easy biking trail section – these rides are sure to boost confidence and easily progress your off-road skills on a bike.

The Blue River paved recreation path also is a great alternative for those just learning or simply interested in taking in the views. With miles of paved recreation paths, the “Rec Path” connects the mountain town with seemingly endless Rocky Mountain scenery.

The miles of meticulously maintained biking trails running throughout Breck and the surrounding areas are thanks to the Town of Breckenridge and Friends of Breckenridge Trails
