We took this trail as our first snowshoeing adventure and it was definitely a good call for coming from sea level just two days before. The trail was peaceful and hard packed for the most part. Snowshoes definitely helped us out as we started our ascent hiking and had our share of post-holing. Past one gentleman and his dog skiing but no one else for the rest of the trip. Gorgeous views the whole way and even stumbled on what appeared to be cat and even bear tracks. Would definitely recommend this trail to anyone looking for a quick snowshoeing adventure. Total time ~1.5hrs. We quickened our return pace as the afternoon thunderstorms were rolling in rather quickly.

Nice hike. The snow is still quite deep. Ice grippers helped. Too bad pet owners are not responsible and pick up after the dogs. It was really bad!

Nice easy hike. Went in the winter, it was easy to follow. The snow was compacted by cross country skiers and other hikers.

Beautiful views today. More snow on this hike than we expected. Layer up as the majority of the hike you are in the shade. Sun drenched at the top though. We want to come back and see it in the summer

Beautiful waterfall marks a halfway marker! The old mine evokes appreciation for older mining times in Breckenridge.

We hiked this trail 2 days ago when visiting Breckenridge for the day. We loved it! It's on an incline the whole way there but leads to a beautiful view. We kept going up Nightmare on Baldy trail. We didn't complete that trail as it was getting late, so we went back down Sallie Barber the trail. if you're looking for a quick hike I'd recommend this one!

Visited on a Sunday afternoon mid-July. Was not too crowded and only a few mountain bikers. Little to no dog poop as suggested in other reviews, but it is essentially just an exposed dirt road so definitely not the most exciting trail. The kids get bored quickly with nothing but road ahead.
