There’s nothing like lacing up your hiking boots and getting “lost” in nature. Recharge from everyday life as you listen to birds chirping and wind blowing through the trees. A vacation rental from Pine Ridge Condominiums is the ideal home base for your Breckenridge fall getaway. The picturesque Colorado landscape is made even more stunning as temperatures cool and leaves start to change color. See the beauty for yourself by leaving room in your itinerary to hit up an area trail or two.
A Guide to Leaf Peeping on Area Trails
Due to high elevation, the leaves around Breckenridge will start changing color in early to mid-September. There is a wide variety of trails to explore that offer visitors prime leaf-peeping, including:
- Blue River Trail: Enjoy scenic views of the 10 Mile Range as you make your way along this 3-mile out and back trail filled with fall foliage and wildflowers.
- Pence Miller Trail: Start your hike by parking at the Town Overlook and look for the trailhead sign across the road. After the trail reaches the mostly flat ditch, keep heading north for the best fall colors.
- Carter Park to Jacks Cruel Joke: Climb the sledding hill at Carter Park to the ditch trail. From there, you’ll work your way south through aspen canopies and spruce trees, perfect for a day of leaf-peeping.
Another popular spot for taking in autumn colors is Boreas Pass. This scenic corridor near Breckenridge, which was once a railroad pass, is now a top destination if you’re looking for breathtaking views. There are several hiking trails to explore, all of which offer panoramic views filled with fall foliage.
The best way to see the fall colors is to book an excursion with a local company like Rocky Mountain Guides, which will customize the trip according to your hiking ability. You can also enjoy stunning views as you shop along Main Street.
