This is a dirt path in the woods that travels in between Boreas Pass Road and Indiana Creek Road in Breckenridge. It passes behind some private homes along Indiana Creek, but the middle portion of the trail is in a miniature valley tucked out of sight, which is surprisingly quiet despite its proximity to the road. A small pond sits perched unexpectedly here, and offers a chance to spot wildlife like waterfowl, deer and maybe even a moose.

Description

The trail is mostly used by mountain bikers to link with other trails south of town, but it makes a nice short, family-friendly outing for anyone in Breckenridge. There is no dedicated parking area for the trail, however. The northern end on Boreas Pass is at the Sawmill Museum and the southern end meets Indiana Creek in between private lots where there is no roadside parking.
