Our Recommended Routes

Beginner to Intermediate - The Bakers Tank- Aspen Ally- Breck Town Ride

Here is the route:
From the trailhead, ride southeast along Boreas Pass Road. The first several miles of trail/road pass through a large aspen grove, and offers stunning views of the Goose Pasture Tarn, the Town of Breckenridge reservoir. At a large bend in the road 1.5 miles from the trailhead, pass the Valdero Trail intersection on the north side of the road.

Baker’s Tank is 1.5 miles further up Boreas Pass Road. The trail is to the left of the tank, up a short section of road. There is a trail marker at a fence identifying the beginning of the trail. The initial climb from Boreas Pass Road is a bit steep, but levels off quickly to a buff, contouring trail in tacky, reddish dirt. There is an overlook with a small bench on the left side of the trail about 1,000 feet from Boreas Pass Road. This is an excellent place for a break.

From the bench, continue west on a nice gradient 3/4 miles to a fork in the trail. To the right is Mountain Pride Trail and to the left, Baker’s Tank Trail continues downhill. There is a marker with a white arrow on a brown background pointing downhill. Go left and begin a wide, rooty descent. Use caution if wet conditions exist as roots can be slippery when wet.

Descend for just under a mile to the intersection of Valdero Trail. This junction is not marked. Valdero Trail to the right is easy to miss. To the left there are two connections to the trail, which descends out to Boreas Pass Road. Should the upper section of Baker’s Tank Trail prove too difficult, exit to Boreas Pass Road via Valdero Trail at this junction as the lower section of Baker’s Tank Trail is steeper and more technical.

Continue due west on Baker’s Tank Trail. The trail begins a short, mellow climb before topping out and descending steeply to the Boreas Pass winter trailhead.

The Aspen Alley trail begins at the Boreas Pass Road winter trailhead. The trail was realigned in 2014, converting it to a very fun, flowy aspen grove touring descent. Finish the trail ride at the Stephen C. West Ice Arena. At the southeast corner of the Ice Rink parking lot find the trail for a quick walk out to see Isaac Heartstone, the massive wooden troll. This is a fun and great photo spot.

From The Ice Rink parking lot, you can head west on Boreas Road then North onto French Street. Follow French and take a left on Jefferson. Cross Main St. and jump on the Blue River bike path to ride behind all of the shops on Main. On Main Street you will find a wide variety of shops, restaurants, bars and more but the traffic is usually crazy so the bike path is your best route. Continue on the Blue River bike path at the gondola for a easy ride back to our shop.

Advanced - The Whole East Side Ride

Looking for a great 20-mile ride with a bit of climbing, great descents, and awesome views? The Whole East Side Ride will challenge the lungs and legs while giving fast, flowy descents.

Here is the route:

From the trailhead, ride southeast along Boreas Pass Road. The first several miles of trail pass through a large aspen grove, and offer stunning views of the Goose Pasture Tarn, the Town of Breckenridge reservoir. At a large bend in the road 1.5 miles from the trailhead, pass the Valdero Trail intersection on the north side of the road. Baker’s Tank is 1.5 miles further up Boreas Pass Road. The trail is to the left of the tank, up a short section of road. There is a trail marker at a fence identifying the beginning of the trail. The initial climb from Boreas Pass Road is a bit steep, but levels off quickly to a buff, contouring trail in tacky, reddish dirt. There is an overlook with a small bench on the left side of the trail about 1,000 feet from Boreas Pass Road. This is an excellent place for a midride break. From the bench, continue west on a nice gradient 3/4 miles to a fork in the trail. To the right is Mountain Pride Trail and to the left, Baker’s Tank Trail continues downhill. Turn right and head up Mountain Pride to your high point for the day at 11,110 feet of elevation. Start your descent down to Pin Ball Alley on the left and stay right toward the cabins for a short climb up the “Crossing Route” Trail which is just a closed Forest Service road. A left and a quick right through a FS gate put you onto Baldy Rd. Hang a left on to True Romance Trail and then descend Nightmare on Baldy Trail. At the bottom turn right and head down past the mine to Salley Barber Rd. Now you ride through a cool section of trail cut through the dredge rock and then into the forest onto Turks Trail for a fun and techy mostly downhill. Continue down B&B Trail to the B&B parking lot.

If you want to skip the climb and the last downhill ride just exit the parking lot and make a left on French Gulch Road then a right on Reiling Road down to a left on Huron Road back to the shop.

To ride the last section from the parking lot you begin your last climb starting up X10U8 trail. Hang a left onto Minnie Mine Trail and then a right onto Side Door Trail up on to Prospect Hill Road (GH38). From here you head downhill to Western Sky Trail where you will hit a paved road that soon merges to dirt and hop back on Western Sky. Cross the road to the top of Slalom and take the fast ride down until the clearing turn and left onto Upper Flume Trail. Hang a right onto Mike’s Trail and then ride the Lower Flume back to Huron Road and on down the road back to the shop.
