COURSE MAPS AND DESCRIPTIONS

To find your way while pre-riding, I STRONGLY recommend purchasing a “Breckenridge and Summit County Hiking and Biking Trail Map” available at most bike shops and at the Visitor Center, Blue River Plaza, Breck. Oh…and bring it with you!  Proceeds from the sale of this map support Open Space and Trails!


PLEASE REFERENCE START TIMES/DISTANCES TO DETERMINE the COURSE LAYOUT FOR YOUR CATEGORY! 
IT IS RIDERS’ RESPONSIBILITY TO UNDERSTAND AND NEGOTIATE THE PROPER COURSE!
