The common saying here in Summit County is: “I came for the winters, but stayed for the summers.”

Summertime is glorious here!!! The weather is fabulous with temperatures ranging from 50-80 degrees, with cool evenings perfect for campfires.

  1. Paved Bike Trails
  2. Mountain Biking
  3. Hiking
  4. Rafting
  5. Zip-Lining
  6. Rock Climbing
  7. Golfing
  8. Paddle Boarding
  9. Boating/Sailing
  10. Concerts
Biking in Breck

Biking on paved trails

eBikes are the newest trend as people of all ages enjoy the paved bike paths together. You can grab a rental in Breckenridge, Frisco, or Dillon and bike for miles! Some people consider biking up and over Swan Mountain Road, but unless you are a very experienced road biker, we don’t recommend it. There are sections where the path ends, and you are on a two lane road. Stick to the bike paths, and have an amazing day! Don’t forget to bring water/electrolytes, and make sure to stop at our Breck Bear picnic table in Farmers Korner between Breckenridge and Frisco. Snap a photo and share it with us!
