Welcome to the October Breckenridge-Frisco Community Insider! Fall in the Breckenridge-Frisco area brings in the cooler weather, smaller crowds, and gorgeous colors. Fall is often considered the “off” season in Colorado – but it really shouldn’t be! There’s still plenty to see and do.
Main Street & Breckenridge Walk Through History Tour
With the breathtaking views and innumerable recreational opportunities, oftentimes, downtown can be an afterthought when planning a trip or weekend in Breckenridge. Of course, you can’t miss the picture-perfect curb appeal of the many shops, restaurants, and bars (most open until 10:00 pm) that are located downtown. But the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance also offers a unique opportunity to learn more about the historic districts and the people who once lived and worked in them.
The Walk Through History Tour runs Tuesdays, Thursday’s and Sundays at 11:00 through the end of October. Reservations should be made at least two hours in advance and cost $20 for adults and $10 for children over 4. The 90-minute walking tour will take you through historical buildings and stately homes where you will hear stories of business booms and busts, gold strikes, robberies, and so much more. You can also tour the infamous (at least locally) Biggle House, which is supposed to be haunted. This tour happens rain or shine, so be sure to dress accordingly! The majority of the time you will be outside.
The Breckenridge Troll
If touring a haunted house isn’t how you’d prefer to spend your afternoon perhaps a different kind of hike would appeal to you. And what better time than October to visit the Breckenridge Mountain Troll? Also known as Isak the Troll, is located on the Trollstigen trail, nearby the Stephen C. West Ice Arena.
This locally famous art piece was created by Danish artist Thomas Dambo during the 2018 Breckenridge International Festival of Arts and is now open year-round for tourists and locals to visit.
You can walk, bike, or take free public transportation to get to the troll but there is no parking at the trailhead. If you’re walking and would prefer to take the shortest route, take the Trollstigen Trail located in the Southeast corner by the Illinois Gulch Trailhead, opposite the Stephen C. West Ice Arena.
If you’re going to be taking the bus, Breck Free Ride has a great app that includes schedules and GPS locations of all vehicles currently operating. It’s pretty handy; you can download it here.
