Frisco Nordic Center - TRAIL

Frisco Nordic Center - Trail, Frisco/Breckenridge, Colorado

There's lots of singletrack here, with the perimeter/lakeside trail being one of my favorites. It's nice and technical with little to no climbing, which makes it a great recovery ride the day after an epic.

Head toward the Breckenridge Resort, continue after the road switchback & the nordic center will be on the right behind/back of the town-homes. Head south on the trail from the nordic center. It will be fast double & single track the trail continues through some sweet single track with no serious climbs. The terrain is small rocks & hard pack indigenous to the region. There is some good shade from evergreens & hardwoods., which makes this a good ride when it gets warm down in Breckenridge. One exhiliarating portion of this trail is the mine site drop-off. Just stay back on the back of the bike & you'll be fine. After that take an extremely fast right & it move on quickly to some open fields & turns into double track that slowly climbs & winds into a left hander to finish at the Nordic center loop. From there is a plethora of trails heading west to the Breckenridge resort. MMF-more major fun.

Great early season ride and also great ride to for those new to singletrack. Confusing aray of trails. My favorite loop is as follows. Start at the lodge. Follow paved trail going back towards highway. Veer right about 50 yds down the path. Smooth flat trail that follows along shore. At campground- look for trail going left. At parking lot- look for two trails on otherside. Flat one follows lake shore and gets technical. Take the one that climbs. After a beautiful view you reach a T-intersection. Go right. Traverse along ridge with more good views. Drops down to road. Go staight and find another trail that drops back to nordic lodge or look left for another trail that parallels the road. This up and down trail will take you back where you came from. After meeting road- go right and then look for trail to your right. This will take you back to a familiar t-intersection. You can figure it out from there. There are other trails everywhere. Just explore.

Trails everywhere! Continue from the above and follow whatever you find. One trail follows close to HW 9 and crosses a road with a gate soon. You then get to an intersection that can loop around. Continue staight and you can loop around to a trail that takes you to the lake or make a turn to come around to the intersection. Go exploring at the back of the disc golf where there are some marked stupid trails and ride across all the grass that is dirt an plants. odnt go left or you will get hit by golf discs! Gets easy after a while but has some rocky ascents and some fun steep climbs.

Come to the nordic center from Frisco on you bike. Right when you come in, there is a roundabout to your right closed off. Ride around the rope and go up the hill on the other side of the roundabout. There will be some snowshoe and dog walk signs. Continue up one of the many paths that will soon become a well marked trail. Follow the trails all over the place.

I may just be an idiot who can't follow directions, so take this with a grain of salt. By my own admission, I forgot to bring the directions that other people mentioned, but I know the area somewhat and I figured how hard could it be to find a trail?

But i spent the whole ride picking my way between Winnebagos and dodging frisbees. The snowshoe map on the side of the lodge showed tons of trails, but when i actually got out there all i saw was a bunch of crappy doubletrack / service roads. Virtually nothing was marked, and when i eventually did find a trail, it took like five minutes to ride and was totally flat.

Based on what other people said, there is obviously some pretty cool stuff that I just didn't find (my loss), so I'm not totally knocking it. My point is that for such a highly populated area, it should be much better marked and/or mapped out.
