Local Breckenridge Easy Hikes

Warrior Mark & Columbine Trails

You can access a trail system just south of Maggie’s Pond. Warrior Mark is 1 mile roundtrip through the forest. There is also the shorter Columbine Trail accessed from the same trailhead that meanders along the Blue River.

Sawmill reservoir

This is a 1.5 mile roundtrip out and back to the reservoir, along a beautiful creek. It is accessed from the Snowflake Lift. If you walk from the condo, it’s an additional 0.5 miles to get to the trailhead along the road, or you can start at the Quicksilver lift and walk along County Road 751 (where it says Burro TH on the map below) to meet up with the Sawmill Creek Trail and make it a loop hike.

Isak the troll

The trail to Isak Heartsone starts at the Illinois Gulch Trailhead, marked Breckenridge Ice Rink TH below. This is a 15 minute walk from the condo. The hike itself is a flat 0.5 miles out and back on Trollstigen Trail.

Burro Trail

Follow County Road 751 just under the Quicksilver Lift for 0.1 miles until you reach Beaver Run Resort. On your left, look for a split rail fence. Go through it and find the well marked Burro Trail sign, this is 6.5 mile out back or you can hike a bit and turn around.
