We "broke the kids in" here for their very first "hike". It's A beautiful area tucked into breckenridge neighborhoods but not a "hike" compared to most of Colorado. However there is a neat / beautiful high lookout point on the eastern edge that gave the kids a wonderful sense of accomplishment and wonder
Love this place!
Tried to hike but trail is closed due to Moose calfing season. Trail should reopen July 5.
Nice easy hike with very pretty views of meadows and ponds. We took this trail down from peak 7 and then caught the gondola near the end to go down into town for lunch. (Carried a 5 month old and a two year old in carriers while our 6 year old and 7 year old walked
Nice beginner trail with a few scenic stops overlooking a meadow. Even saw a moose at a distance.
Nice scenic easy hike.
Tried to do this trail but it is closed until July 6, 2015. I gave 3 stars because it sounds interesting.
I wasn't too impressed with Cucumber gulch at first; lots of houses, very few points of interest, although a lot of wildflowers.
There is, however, a trail marked Pence Miller on the northern end of the gulch which is quite nice. Pence Miller is much more secluded, and runs along a cliff from which you can overlook airport road and park ave. It ultimately loops back to Ski Hill Rd, so you don't have to worry about retracing your steps.
Did this trail just looking for flowers with daughter. Found just a few but did find a huge moose and her calf. Very cool. Not well marked trailhead and views were below average
Closed for the summer!
