Incredible view for little elevation gain. I was planning on wearing snowshoes but didn’t need them, wore my yak tracks but probably would have been fine without them. Beautiful sunny day, definitely worth the drive!

Heavenly gorgeous views in “the bowl” of the mountains. Trekked in the snow today. Helpful to have micro spikes. Be sure to check out the old cabins about halfway through the trail.

Beautiful views. We only did the first three miles from Breckenridge. Unraveled trail, narrow in places with steep cliffs at edge of road. I look forward to driving the whole trail next time.

From Montezuma Rd, that’s where the dirt road starts that brings you to the 4x4 road. It’s about 2.5mi each way and any car with clearance can make it. There’s a little pull-off at the turn for the 4x4 road, that can hold about 5 cars, it only had 3 on Saturday 10/19 at 11am. If you have four wheel drive, you can drive the next 1.5mi up the 4x4 road to the trailhead. If not, park and start walking. Saw a few groups, a runner and lots of dogs. Didn’t see any wildlife. The lake and snow at the end is unbelievable.

Went from Breckenridge to Como back to Breckenridge today. Snowed on us most of the way. The north side of the pass had plenty of accumulation and a few soggy spots, south side was dry.

Great trail! We hiked to the “2nd Tee-Pee” with our 2 year-old and dog. It was snowing and absolutely beautiful! About 1 mile each way- perfect for a short hike in the morning!

Nice easy trail you can make as long or short of a loop as you want. We started across from Peaks Trail parking up past Peak 7 Resort. The trailhead was "Toad Alley", which was confusing as it's not listed on AllTrails app. We combined this with the Gulch, Shock Hill, Gold Digger and Morning Glory for a nice loop. Shock Hill will take you through a bunch of nice houses on the hills if you wanted to see some up close.

Hiked from Barton Road access to Frisco. The Barton path is not shown correctly. It is actually a loop that doesn’t intersect Peaks. Fortunately another hiker told me that and pointed me to a faint path that goes west and connects. From there, the trail was terrific until intersected by a new logging road. At that point I couldn’t find the Peaks Trail and ended up detouring until I found Colorado trail and got back on track.

Great trail, partial snowpack in many places but still doable in my tennis shoes. Very beautiful and easy trail. The dog had a blast too.

This is a great trail. Easy ascent through an evergreen forest that opens into a cirque and then the climb starts. The views from the top are 360 degrees mountains and worth the effort. THAT SAID, if there is snow on the trail, I would strongly recommend NOT doing the loop. Did this one when there wasn’t a ton of snow. We took the left trail at the loop and the trail was pretty clear all the way to the peak. Met a local couple who said they were going back down the way they came up. They were smart. The loop having come up from the left or the ascent taking the right trail at the balloon is completely unmarked. And we were using AllTrails. Ended up bushwhacking and butt sliding down a ton. Saw a couple of footprints all over that side of the cirque. Assuming they were also trying to find a way down. So do this trail, but take the left trail at the balloon and come back down it.

Snow covered, but mostly packed the entire way. Gorgeous views and found some near tracks that appeared fresh. Old mining site was cool.

Lovely hike for a family. A lot to explore for kids at the mine. Trail was covered in snow all the way up after recent snow storm but nothing too bad. Just bring waterproof boots.

Trail is snowy but doable. It’s a good hike, the views are great at the end. Although, the “end” of the trail on AllTrails isn’t truly the end when you’re hiking, you could continue if you want and make it longer.
