This is hike is like a walking outdoor mining museum. It's a great kid hike, too, because it's easy, and there are numerous interesting mining items spread throughout the hike.

Another nice one to break in the kids that aren't used to anything like this. Less than 2 miles round trip, basically an up and down, with cool old mining ruins. Beautiful view and beautiful section of the woods but a drop in the bucket compared to what the surrounding areas have to offer

This was the first trail I hiked with my family in Breckenridge to become acclimated to the new elevation (we came from just above sea level a few days earlier). The trail was well marked up until we got to the road where there were many private houses. It took us about 30 minutes to get up to this road, while stopping every so often. I recommend this hike for anyone looking for something simple to hike in the morning. There’re some points of interest along the way and some history while you walk up the ridge.

Hiked this in the fall so the aspens were beautiful against the blue sky. Easy hike but fun to learn about the mining that created Breckenridge.
