Winter Rec Path Uses

Rec Path Winter Grooming

The Rec Path is plowed and ready for summer activities. Enjoy!

Winter Rec Path access has moved to the Frisco Nordic Center/Ball Field parking lots. The upper lot will be closed for snow storage.

During the winter the Rec Path is groomed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Summit County, the U.S. Forest Service and the towns of Breckenridge and Frisco partner to groom 8 miles of the Summit County Recreation Path between Frisco and Breckenridge.


The groomed section of the Rec Path extends from the Frisco Nordic Center to the Breckenridge Recreation Center, offering over 8 miles of free, winter recreation. The grooming connects the Gold Run Nordic Center and Frisco Nordic Center, as well as both towns. The grooming services also increase winter trail access to and from Summit High School and several residential neighborhoods along the route.

The groomed portion of the Rec Path is free to use and open to the public, but trail passes are still required at the Frisco Nordic Center and Gold Run Nordic Center. Both of these Nordic centers, along with Breckenridge Nordic Center, offer joint passes, which may be used at all three locations.

If you start in Frisco, please be aware that a portion of the free path does cross our fee-based Nordic trails. Please follow the signs and stay on the free trails; if you want leave the Rec Path to ski or snowshoe on the Frisco Nordic trails, visit the Frisco Nordic Center to purchase a day pass.
