You are definitely in the right place if you like single track with spectacular mountain views and old dirt mining roads. Frisco is surrounded on three sides by National Forest (75% of Summit County is public land) and it takes locals years to bike it all, so you will never be bored. Whether you are just learning to mountain bike or are looking for something more gnarly to test your skills, we’ve got it all!
Classic Mountain Bike Rides in Frisco
This is a favorite because it has enough climbs and technical bits to challenge you, but it won’t destroy you – so you can do more exploring on your bike the next day. It can be ridden from Frisco or Breckenridge, but here in the office we prefer an out-and-back from Frisco (about 16 miles) with a post ride beverage on Frisco’s Main Street. If downhill is more your thing, this is a great shuttle ride starting in Breckenridge and ending in Frisco. But don’t be fooled, there is still some climbing involved.
Frisco Peninsula Lakeshore Perimeter Loop
This is a classic lunch hour ride with incredible views and waterside riding along the Dillon Reservoir. For a longer ride, you can access plenty of other trails from the Perimeter, and they are perfect for exploring with little chance of getting lost. This 6 mile ride is a great way to get your legs ready for more and is usually one of the first trails in Summit County to be free of snow and ready to ride in the spring.
Frisco Peninsula Trails
The Town of Frisco trail crews have been adding miles of trail at the Frisco Peninsula over the last few years, with more on the way! Whether you want flow, climbs, or chunk, there’s plenty to explore!
Stop by our local bike shops, Rebel Sports, Pioneer Sports, Podium Sports, and Christy Sports, to rent a bike if you need one, tune your bike if you have one, or find out how you can access miles and miles of trails with a just short ride up the Recpath!
