Frisco Nordic Center

Average Rating:    (3.83 of 5)

There's lots of singletrack here, with the perimeter/lakeside trail being one of my favorites. It's nice and technical with little to no climbing, which makes it a great recovery ride the day after an epic.

Summary:
I may just be an idiot who can't follow directions, so take this with a grain of salt. By my own admission, I forgot to bring the directions that other people mentioned, but I know the area somewhat and I figured how hard could it be to find a trail? But i spent the whole ride picking my way between Winnebagos and dodging frisbees. The snowshoe map on the side of the lodge showed tons of trails, but when i actually got out there all i saw was a bunch of crappy doubletrack / service roads. Virtually nothing was marked, and when i eventually did find a trail, it took like five minutes to ride and was totally flat. Based on what other people said, there is obviously some pretty cool stuff that I just didn't find (my loss), so I'm not totally knocking it. My point is that for such a highly populated area, it should be much better marked and/or mapped out.

The area in and around the Frisco Nordic Center has been devastated by the pine bark beetle. I visited it on 9/22/2007 and found that the majority of the pine trees have been or are being removed in a huge logging operation. Except for the campgrounds and area by Lake Dillon, large areas have been clear cut and trails have been obliterated. Much work remains to be done before the job is over.

Trees will take a decade or more to return. Maybe new trails will be graded next year. No one at the headquarters could tell me anything.

Summary:
Trails everywhere! Continue from the above and follow whatever you find. One trail follows close to HW 9 and crosses a road with a gate soon. You then get to an intersection that can loop around. Continue staight and you can loop around to a trail that takes you to the lake or make a turn to come around to the intersection. Go exploring at the back of the disc golf where there are some marked stupid trails and ride across all the grass that is dirt an plants. odnt go left or you will get hit by golf discs! Gets easy after a while but has some rocky ascents and some fun steep climbs.

Recommended Route:
Come to the nordic center from Frisco on you bike. Right when you come in, there is a roundabout to your right closed off. Ride around the rope and go up the hill on the other side of the roundabout. There will be some snowshoe and dog walk signs. Continue up one of the many paths that will soon become a well marked trail. Follow the trails all over the place.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Peaks, Three Forks of the Swan, Copper Mountain, Straight Creek, Gold Run, Gold Hill.

Summary:
Great early season ride and also great ride to for those new to singletrack. Confusing aray of trails. My favorite loop is as follows. Start at the lodge. Follow paved trail going back towards highway. Veer right about 50 yds down the path. Smooth flat trail that follows along shore. At campground- look for trail going left. At parking lot- look for two trails on otherside. Flat one follows lake shore and gets technical. Take the one that climbs. After a beautiful view you reach a T-intersection. Go right. Traverse along ridge with more good views. Drops down to road. Go staight and find another trail that drops back to nordic lodge or look left for another trail that parallels the road. This up and down trail will take you back where you came from. After meeting road- go right and then look for trail to your right. This will take you back to a familiar t-intersection. You can figure it out from there. There are other trails everywhere. Just explore.

Recommended Route:
Clockwise from nordic center lodge
