Total distance: Up to 7.8 miles
Getting there: This trail is easily accessed from downtown Breckenridge. Park downtown (the closets lot is F-Lot) and walk up Village Road towards the Beaver Run. After you pass under the overpass, turn left into the Beaver Run bus station. You could also take either the brown or yellow Breckenridge Free Ride buses and get off at the Beaver Run stop. From the bus stop, walk onto the slopes between the Beaver Run Chair and the Coppertop Restaurant. Keep straight across the hill, and look for the brown trailhead sign on the other side of the ski run.
The hike: The shady Burro Trail is marked with blue diamond blazes and meanders through pine forest alongside a picturesque creek. The trail is an out-and-back, so go as far as you’d like! The Burro Trail ends at Spruce Creek Road.
