Trails and Trail Map
The Breckenridge Nordic Center’s Trails are unique in the West. Just a minute’s drive from Downtown Breckenridge up Ski Hill Road, you’ll discover 1,400 acres of Cross Country Nordic and Snowshoeing trails. They travel in and through the town’s protected Cucumber Gulch Preserve and up in the High Country in the New Nordic World under Peaks 6 and 7.
The trails start at 9,800 feet and circumnavigate the area through pristine legend forests with soaring mountain views. Due to the Nordic Center’s high mountain location, it’s season runs from mid November thru April – the longest in Colorado. The consistent snow quality and kettle moraine topography terrain creates an exceptional destination for all types of Nordic sports and skill levels.
There are over 30 kilometers of well-groomed Nordic trails with set tracks for traditional classic style skiing and skate lanes for freestyle Nordic skiing while snowshoers enjoy over 20 kilometers of singletrack trails.
Nestled on the *Upper trails are two destination huts, the Hallelujah Hut and Kathy’s Viewpoint Cabin/Sauna. The 18 X 18 hand hewn square log cabin called the Hallelujah Hut (shown below) was the original “Retort House” for smelting gold ore into 20 pound gold blocks during historic mining days of the late 1890’s.
The trails are illustrated below and you can also click for a full size PDF of the map.

“Best Nordic Center, Best Trails, and Best Food”
This is one of the best nordic centers ever. First, the miles and miles of trails through the woods, right by the base of the Breck ski area, and the trails like Glutes Minimus says it all. The downhill runs are equal to any greens at the ski area. Then there is the Hallelujah Hut. The owners restored this old cabin and it serves as a warming hut. It’s beautiful to ski to it through the woods with spectacular views of the mountains. The Nordic center is beautiful inside and very welcoming, with great soups and drinks. Suzie, Fort Collins
