Mountain Biking in Summit County near Breckenridge and Keystone

When the snow first melts, riders gravitate towards the Frisco Peninsula and the Oro Grande trail from Dillon towards Keystone.  These two trails offer the first dry riding of the season.  As the snow melts the higher trails become more accessible.  The Peaks Trail from Breckenridge to Frisco is a favorite.  The trails around Bakers Tank and Boreas Pass above Breckenridge offer many afternoons of exploration.  Parking at the dredge off of Tiger Road also provides many opportunities for exploration, especially if you like fast and flowing single track and epic views.  The Colorado Trail and Blair Witch are two of my favorites.  The ride to and back from Georgia Pass is also a great way to spend the day.  These trails are also a ton of fun if you access them from the Summit Cove side of the county.  Riding a mountain bike in Summit County lets you explore this wonderful backcountry at a slow enough pace to take it all in, but at a quick enough pace to see a lot of terrrain in a day. 

There are a lot of networks of trails in the area.  The fun part about riding up here is exploring those networks and then linking them together.

If racing is more your style and for a great way to learn about some of the trail networks in the county try racing the Firecracker 50 or the Summit Mountain Challenge produced by Mavsports.  The Firecracker 50 is a wonderful race on the 4th of July and the Summit Mountain Challenge is the local Wednesday night race series.
