Toad Alley is subject to early season closures (until approximately July, 1st) for moose calving. The Peaks Connect and Four O'clock trails can be utilized during these months for the bottom section of the loop.


This is a 100% singletrack tour of the Breckenridge Ski Resort. The downside is the ride is on the ski resort. The upside is the ride (with the exception of closing the loop through town) is 100% singletrack!

Need to Know

Breckenridge Ski Resort is open to lift serviced biking. The trails are by no means downhill oriented. Most of these trails are little frequented by the lift-serviced crowd; however be cautious on Swinger Switchback and Pioneer in particular.

The loop begins and ends at the Beaver Run parking lot at the base of Peak 9.

The final 2-1/2 miles features an entirely singletrack connection between the Town of Breckenridge and the Peaks Trail.

Because of the open ski trails, there are excellent views for much of this ride. Additionally, the open ski trail provide wildlife grazing opportunities. Moose, deer and elk sightings (on Peak 9 in particular) are quite common.


Park at the Beaver Run lot. Ride east out of the parking lot and 1/2 mile up the access road. Pass the Beaver Run Superchair, then the lower Superconnect lift terminal. The Wanderer Trail begins on the left side of the access road in a right switchback 500' further.

Wanderer begins in the forest before dropping down to a drainage in an open meadow. This section of trail is a bit primitive. Just follow the drainage uphill. The trail passes through two intersections with horse trails used for ski area pack tours. Be alert for horses. Wanderer switches back then climbs back to the access road.

Go left up the road to the Ten Mile Station restaurant. Turn right towards the restaurant and take the left forking road passing above it. Look for a "Sunday Worship Services" sign on the left side of the road and the continuation of the Wanderer singletrack just beyond the sign. Wanderer enters the forest between two ski trails before again climbing to the access road after a short distance.

Go right and climb the access road a short distance. At a long fence line on the right of the access road, Wanderer continues. From this point to the Supperconnect, mid-load station Wanderer is pretty easy to follow. Just continue across any intersecting road, and at the two trail junctions to the right. Upon reaching the mid-load station, descend to another access road in Sawmill Gulch and turn left, up the drainage.

Climb the steep access road for about 1/4 mile to the continuation of Wanderer singletrack on the right hand side of the road. Climb to the top, and end of Wanderer on the 4 O'clock ski run. Cross the run, and ride to a three-way trail intersection with the Swinger singletrack. Go left, climbing steadily.

At the fourth switchback, there is another three-way intersection where the Swinger and Pioneer trails diverge. Go left onto Pioneer, climbing through more switchbacks, passing the Edge Trail (a connection to Frosty's trail).

Climb Pioneer/Swinger to the Vista Haus Restaurant and the top of Dwight's Trail. Descend Dwight's to the first intersection. Turn left onto Game Trail. Climb Game Trail northwest to an access road. Ride this road to the T-Bar ski lift. (Note: the resort is constructing an extension of the Game Trail to this roadway. The trail construction is visible on the right. This should be completed in 2018).

At the T-Bar, look for the Game Trail singletrack continuing to the north. Descend Game Trail, crossing two access roads, and the Zendo Trail. At the bottom of Game Trail merge with Dwight's and continue towards the base area.

Just before the final descent into the base area, look for a singletrack on the left, just above the Ski Watch condominiums. The singletrack enters the trees above the condos, crosses a boardwalk then intersects the uphill end of Ski Watch Drive. Look for the Peaks Connect singletrack due north, adjacent to the wetlands. Take this singletrack to another access road. At the first switchback in the access road, take a singletrack on the right to the Peaks Trail, then turn right to the trailhead.

Cross the road, turn left and look for the Toad Alley singletrack on the east side of Ski Hill Road. Turn right and follow Toad Alley to Shock Hill trail. Turn left along the meadow on Shock Hill trail. Look for a singletrack spur on the right. Take this up to an overlook. Continue northeast around Shock Hill to Pence Miller trail.

Descend Pence Miller past Claimjumper to the Skyway Skiway, turn right and climb to 4 O'clock trail. Turn left and descend over a bridge. Turn hard right, back uphill and look for a narrow asphalt path in the bushes on the south side of the trail that passes between two condos. Take this south and cross 4 O'clock Road to Primrose Path (road) and ride this back to the parking lot.

In lieu of Skyway Skiway to 4 O'clock, simply descend to Park Avenue and ride pavement back to Beaver Run.

Meh. If your staying at the resort and just want a quickie, then this is fine. Otherwise there are much better loops in the neighborhood. 14mi — 2h 10m
