The trail begins off the base of Peak 9, near Quicksilver chairlift. It takes you along a creek through pine forest and meadows. You can eventually connect to Spruce Creek Trail. Great scenery and a relaxing, family-friendly path.

I'd say it's one of the easier trails. A good option for a trail run! You start along a pretty creek then it turns wooded. If you want to go to crystal peak you can take this trail from town. Easy accessible from Main Street.

First of all, this trail is pretty much uphill all the way to the top, with a few flat portions. The middle and most of the trail beyond is real rocky and full of pine roots. For an uphill on a Mtn Bike, pretty rugged; be prepared to walk part of it up. At the top I suggest taking a right (I believe this is Spruce Rd) and heading back toward Breckenridge mountain. You can take several trail options that will funnel you down toward Beaver Run. Overall a fun trail. I think better for hiking though.

Beautiful views on a clear day! I really enjoyed my hike even as a solo hiker.

Moderate hike but nothing special. It was a hike to nowhere! Just lead to other trails. Trail was very rocky and amongst overcrowded evergreens with growth only at the top. Very few Aspens.

This is a nice hike and ranges from easy to moderate level of difficulty. While the hike is pretty and you can see mountains through the trees, the view is mostly blocked so there isn't much of a reward for completing the trail. You do, however, have the option to continue on another trail which may yield better scenic views.
