Alpine Flowers in the Summer

It was a snow spring in the Town of Breckenridge (<-- here's a map link) and all that moisture led me to explore and make this list of 7 Hiking Trails in the Colorado Rocky Mountains for Viewing Wildflowers that you have to see to believe. The slow melting process drips life into blooms that sit under tons of snow and wait until the few days that it is warm enough to fulfill the cycle one more time. It is truly an amazing thing to see, the ski slopes and mountains covered in millions, probably billions of colorful wildflowers.

Adventures in Breckenridge and Beyond

Part of your wedding experience for friends, family and guests could be strolling through the shops along Main Street or you might even spend some time at the Fun Park on Peak 8. Check out the new roller coaster, but the alpine slide is a summer classic in Breck. However, if you're ready with a backpack with your 10 Essentials and want an adventure, check out the videos below. They are best completed with a backpack full of everything you need, a group of energetic friends, and a camera or two. Post a few on our Facebook wall, and be sure to use the hashtag, #breckweddings on Instagram so that everyone can see all the fun high country weddings. Please contact us with any questions.

[TRAIL] The View From The Minnie Mine in Breckenridge, Colorado

The trail system near Breckenridge is an absolutely amazing connection of old mining roads and singletrack that travels through the trees and hillsides. Some trails, like the Minnie Mine, has lots of old mining structures that you can look at, while trying to imagine this place during the gold rush.

There's even a dredge boat they plan to restore in a pond on the south side of the loop we do. We connect with the "bomber trail" or the B&B trail, according to the sign. Lots of variations exist in this area, please take a map, and share your pics with us!
