A Breckenridge classic on the south end of Main Street. The Blue Moose is just a simple breakfast spot – you won’t find any mind blowing iterations on huevos rancheros or eggs benedict with crab on top here. As a matter of fact, you won’t even find a credit card machine, so bring cash to pay for your meal. But sometimes you just need a good strong cup of coffee and some pancakes before your day on the hill, and this is the place to get them.

File under: I need a beer and I also need something for my kids to do. Downstairs at Eric’s is a legendary Breckenridge sports bar, and while the food is very average, they do have a lot of beer and an arcade full of video games for little ones to go buck wild on.

Hiking (Summer only)
Some of the best hikes around Breck!
This trail is accessed off of Ski Hill Road. During the winter it serves as cross country ski and snowshoe trails for the Breckenridge Nordic Center. The trail meanders through meadows, by streams and ponds, and through forest offering a range of wildflower habitats. There is little elevation gain over 2.9 miles making it an excellent beginner hike or first day at elevation hike. You are also likely to see moose and other wildlife along the way. The trail is closed until July 9th for wildlife conservation. Get there: Take bus route to Breck Station (last stop @ Gondola). Ride the free Gondola to the 2nd station (Crystal Peak Lodge). Walk on backside of buildings where the Independence SuperChair is located. Follow the hill up shortly next to Grand Lodge on Peak 7 & catch trail (Peaks Connect) on the right through skinny trees which leads back down to Ski Hill Road. There is an information board & some parking along road. Cross over road to the east, and pick up ‘Morning Glory’. Trail leads through the nature preserve & back under the gondola to the south side of preserve. Follow trail 2 miles until you reach ‘Josie’s Cabin’ under the gondola at the 1st station. 2 choices: Climb up & ride the gondola either back up or back down. OR pick up the lower ‘Pence Miller’ trail (2 miles) from ‘Josie’s Cabin’ which will take you to the Town Overlook & eventually all the way down to the ’Gondola Ski Back-Parking Lot Access’. There are some stairs & a tunnel that leads under N. Park Ave and back to the Breck Station). The Gondola opens @ 9am during the summer & is free to ride. Hike is mostly downhill, with some short uphills. (Trail can also be hiked in the opposite direction, but will be mostly uphill.) Please be respectful and stay on open trails & keep voices down as Moose/Dear/Beavers can be spotted throughout the Preserve. Wear comfortable walking/hiking shoes. Carry a backpack with water/snacks/camera/raincoat. Bring bug spray as the mosquitoes may be out as a lot of the preserve is marshlands. Our family has hiked both the short (with grandparents) & long version of this trail (with kids). We can highly recommend!

*Moderate - Difficult Hike* Get there: Head south from town on U.S. 9 to Spruce Creek Road (No. 800). Continue 1.2 miles to the trail-head. A perennial favorite (for a reason!), Mohawk Lakes is often referred to as an absolute must do. Here’s why: it’s a stunning five-mile hike that climbs to gorgeous lakes and historic ruins. It’s equal parts challenging and do-able for the entire family.
