Frisco-Farmers Korner Recpath Description

The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad, a narrow-gauge line that once linked Denver with Gunnison, served much of the Colorado Mineral Belt as an independent railroad from 1872 to 1889. A major spur branched off from the main line at Como, crossing the Boreas Pass to Breckenridge and the Fremont Pass between Frisco and Leadville. Three connecting trails now occupy segments of this spur: the Ten Mile Canyon Recpath from Frisco to Copper Mountain; the Blue River Recpath from south of Frisco to Breckenridge; and the Frisco-Farmers Korner Recpath through Frisco.

Running along downtown Frisco's southern edge, the Frisco-Farmers Korner Recpath offers a convenient link to shops, beautiful mountain views and several connections to other trails in the Summit County Recreational Pathway System. From the trail's western end, travel east on Main Street to access Frisco's retail core, or pick up the stunning Ten Mile Canyon Recpath to reach Copper Mountain. At Peak One Drive, cross State Route 9 to take the popular Dillon Dam Recpath around Dillon Reservoir. Alternatively, continue on the Blue River Recpath from Summit High School (near the Farmer's Korner neighborhood) to reach Breckenridge's charming downtown.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Frisco-Farmers Korner Recpath is available in Frisco just off Interstate 70 (Exit 201) at a parking lot on Main Street (at the southern end of Forest Drive). From there, take the Ten Mile Canyon Recpath east a short distance to reach the trail. If the lot is full, try parking on-street in town.

Additional parking can be found at the trail's southern endpoint at Summit High School on the southeastern edge of Frisco (16201 State Route 9).

"We did the Frisco-Farmer's Korner Recreation Trail this past summer. While the rail-trail itself is only a couple miles long, the entire trail system in the area encompasses more than 40 miles of interconnected paved trail. There are also many mountian bike trails in the area, but we didn't do them (we use hybrid bikes and a bike cart).

The Frisco-Farmer's Korner Recreation Trail connects with a beautiful trail that loops around Dillon Lake. Part of the trail is on a road that climbs around 600 feet and is not recommended for bike carts (we doubled back). The trail also connects to a lovely trail that goes to Keystone.

My seven-year-old son did 33 miles that day (he'll do 43 miles in Illinois - Lance Armstrong watch out?). Give him a couple of years, and he'll probably be doing the climb! My son also liked the little mountain bike practice trail (maybe a 50 yard oval)at Keystone.

Frisco is a very bike-friendly town -- there are bikeways everywhere. You can go down Main Street and connect with the Ten Mile Canyon Trail. That trail is beautiful, but you can hear and sometimes see the Interstate. Main Street in Frisco also has a great ice cream shop. Aside from the very nice (but hilly and a real challenge with a bike cart - at 9000 feet) first several miles and a stretch near Breckenridge, the connecting trail to Breckenridge isn't as scenic (it's along a busy road). The loop around Dillon reservoir and up to Keystone was our favorite. These trails are gorgeous!

For more information on all of the trails in the area, call the Summit County Chamber of Commerce at 800-530-3099. They can send you a very nice free guide to the paved and mountain bike trails around the area. The guide also has topographical profiles, so flatlanders like us know what we're getting into!
