Starting from the Co. Rd. 13 trail head(9,500ft) follow the trail as is parallels
Middle Frisco Creek all the way to Frisco Lake(12,000ft). The trail starts easy
and becomes more technical and steep as the trail ascends to Frisco Lake. The
climb is well rewarded with stunning views as your break tree line at the top
and a fast and flowy descent back to the trail head.
Description from southforkmtbkr:
A beautiful single track that climbs deep into the high alpine terrain of Colorado. 7 miles one way, 14 miles out and back.
This ride begins at the confluence of west and middle Frisco Creek. From here the single track parallels Middle Frisco Creek all the way up to Frisco Lake. Or you can take the West Frisco ATV trail up (a slightly easier climb), and the singletrack Middle Frisco trail back down. The trail begins at 9,500 ft and climbs up to 12,000 ft at the lake.
The first half of the trail has a smooth flow though the aspens and pines as it meanders up, down and around while maintaining an overall steady climb. Riders can expect to negotiate a few stationary rocks and tree roots. As Frisco Creek valley gets steeper, the trail has a series of switch backs that are a little loose and rocky but all rideable. The trail here is more technical because it is looser, rockier and more exposed than the lower part. As you near the lake, you will emerge above the tree line and behold some amazing Colorado views. Once reaching the lake, you are ready to reverse your tracks and begin 2,500 vertical feet of pure downhill fun!
