During late spring and early summer, the weather is just spectacular around the Breckenridge area.

With countless trails spread through the Breckenridge area providing you access to the fantastic restaurants located within the main strip of Breckenridge.

There are numerous hiking routes that are sure to bring you to walk around town and the surrounding areas, one of my personal favorite hikes around Breckenridge is the B&B trailhead located near the bustling Country Boy Mine, one of the most profitable mines within Summit County. On this hike, it takes you up to a large mining machine, the dredge which takes gravel off the surface of streams and rivers sifting through to find gold.
Another way around town would be local transportation, the town has a route in which they can help you get from point A to point B, check breckfreeride.com for further details and schedules.
