Mines of Mount Royal Biking Tour

Join Museum staff on a historic bike ride! This intermediate bike ride goes around Mount Royal and through the Tenmile Canyon, exploring the mines that once operated there. This is a great activity for visitors and locals who want to learn more about Frisco’s mining history, the natural environment, and the railroads of the area. The route is just over 5 miles round-trip with plenty of water breaks and scenic views making it a fun morning for the whole family.

Advance registration is required. Registration closes at 5:00pm the day before. Registration details and waiver information below.

About the Tour

The Mines of Mount Royal bike tour starts at 9:00am at the Schoolhouse Museum. The guided bike tour will begin at the Schoolhouse Museum and follow the Recreation Path for 2 miles of gradual uphill incline with multiple stops at the many mines along the way. Once we reach the final mine stop, participants can return to the Schoolhouse with Museum staff on a fully downhill route or continue up the Recreation Path towards Copper Mountain on their own.

What to Bring

This tour is entirely outdoors. Please wear hiking shoes or outdoor sneakers, a hat, and weather-appropriate layers. Do not wear flip-flops, open-toed slides, or soft shoes. You will also need to bring water, a snack, and sunscreen. All participants will follow the pack-in, pack-out rule.

All participants must bring their own bikes. Bikes and helmets are not available to rent through the Museum. There are multiple bike rental shops in Frisco that offer road, mountain, and e-bike rentals. The tour route will follow the paved Recreation Path so off-road bikes are not necessary. Helmets are required for all participants.

Restrooms are located at the Schoolhouse Museum. We are unable to accommodate pets on this tour.
