Upper and Lower Flume Trails

Average Rating:    (2 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

Mostly single track. Watch out for all the construction going on. Many new homes are sprouting up near the trails. Mostly flat, few climbs. Cool part of the trail is that for part of it you are riding in a flume. Check out the cool flume descriptions on Lower Flume Trail

Trail Directions
Park your car at the Breck Rec Center. Cross Highway 9 and head up CR 450. CR 450 will fork right before French Creek. Take the left fork, the dirt road. Continue up the road uptil you reach Bearing Tree Rd. If you don't like climbing up the road there is a great trail right alongside the road on the left side as you climb. Take a left at Bearing Tree, you will see a trail entrance right past the house on the left. You are now on Upper Flume Trail. Continue heading North for about a half hour until you reach a large clearing. You will know if you have gone too far if you reach a logging road. At the clearing take a left. You are now on Lower Flume Trail. Take this trail back to CR 450

Nothing special but makes for a great acclimation ride for those who don't live at 9600ft. Climb up Upper Flume to middle flume which is generally flat but has a double set of offset singletrack which is sort of fun to switch between. Mike's trail is a short decent downhill. Middle flume and lower flume is pretty much flat.

Recommended Route:
Parked by recyclind center. Rode Lower flume to upper flume to Mike's Trail to Middle Flume and back to Lower flume to the car.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Peaks trail from Breck to Frisco. Nice downhill at the end.
