Located at the core of the aptly-named Summit County, where parts of the Front, Tenmile, and Gore Ranges collide, Frisco offers year-round opportunities for adventure. Perched at 9,097 feet on the Dillon Reservoir, just 30 minutes from six world-class ski resorts and surrounded by public lands, Frisco makes an ideal basecamp for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. Dozens of trails, ideal for hiking, snowshoeing, and mountain biking, are easily accessible from town and allow visitors of all skills and fitness levels to explore the nearby forests, mountains, and valleys.
Visitors to Frisco have the kind of problem faced by both locals and out-of-towners —with so many recreation opportunities, where should they start? This map is a combination of a standard trail map on the front with a helpful guide on the back that has a selection of recommended hikes, from the easy 0.8 mile Rainbow Lake Trail to the difficult, lung-busting 3,800 foot climb up Peak One. Each selected trail includes a brief description, specs such as elevation gain and length as well as a detailed elevation profile to track your progress up and down the numerous peaks and valleys.
Each Local Trails map includes detailed trail maps at 1 inch = 1/2 mile. At this scale every turn of the trail is clearly visible and when covering steep terrain the contours are clearly visible. In addition to the standard features like trailheads and parking areas the maps also show difficulties for each trail segment so you can tell if the entire trail is moderate or if there is only a single short section of difficult on an otherwise easy trail.
Every Local Trails map is printed on "Backcountry Tough" waterproof, tear-resistant paper. A full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation.
