Trail Description
About this trail
The Burro Trail runs for about 4 miles one-way, although it has a few branches, runs through a network of unmarked trails near Breckenridge, and connects to other trails on its upper end.

You can either ride this trail from town as an out-and-back, or loop it with the highway and the dirt Spruce Creek Road. I personally incorporated it into a much longer ride with several other trails. The trailhead given is for the upper end of the trail off of Spruce Creek Road.

The upper portion of the trail is located on an old logging road grade that has since narrowed down into mostly singletrack. It's a fast but pedally descent with lots of loose rocks.

Once it takes a right turn off the road bed, things get interesting with some fast, swoopy singletrack descending through a vast network of mostly unmarked singletrack. Choose your own adventure, keep going downhill, and eventually you will end up in Breckenridge!

Review: This trail is great for connecting from certain areas on the mountain side to others, but honestly, it's not that great of a trail. While it can be somewhat entertaining in spots, essentially this is a babyhead-filled roadgrade that has narrowed to singletrack in spots.

Review: I rode the Burro Trail out of necessity as we parked our car on a trailhead and it seemed silly to ride a mountain bike on the road when there's a perfectly good trail to ride.

This trail is key as it connects some of the high alpine trails and goes north and south instead of riding on the Hwy. So the function of this trail is great. It's tough, and not a fun tough. Basically gains 1000ft in 3 miles on wide and steep rocky terrain. It flattens out a few times and feels more narrow at those times but it's very average for the area. Lots of hikers, dog walkers, etc. Thought Baker's Tank was better and Peaks Trail is much better.
