Description

The 5th stage of the Breck Epic is one of the most difficult stages of the week. Beginning at the Burro trail, it climbs steeply up and over the Ten Mile Range.

Dropping part way down the back side, the trail then regains the crest of the Ten Mile Range, and drops down the uber-technical Miner's Creek trail.

Eventually, the stage returns to Breckenridge on the Peaks Trail.

Difficulty

Extreme

Very steep, difficult, narrow singletrack with widely variable and unpredictable trail conditions. Unavoidable obstacles could be 15in/38cm tall or greater, and unavoidable obstacles with serious consequences are likely to be present. Obstacles could include big rocks, difficult root sections, drops, jumps, sharp switchbacks, and more. Ideal for expert-level riders.
