From I-70, take either of the 2 exits for Frisco and head south on CO 9 for Breckenridge. When you come to the roundabout just north of town, head west onto North Park Ave. which will soon turn south. Continue south .7 mile to a major intersection. Turn right (west) here onto Ski Hill Road. Follow the road as it winds its way up to the Peak 8 Base area. There is a sizable parking lot across from the Grand Colorado Lodge, but day parking here may not be allowed. If not, continue north on Ski Hill Road toward the Peak 7 Base area and just beyond the Grand Lodge, there is an official trailhead with limited parking at the coordinates provided. Parking here will increase hiking distance just a little.


There will be no authorized camping anywhere near the trailhead and car camping overnight here will likely not be allowed. The closest campsites will be those available just out of Frisco on Lake Dillon or other campgrounds around the lake. Reservations are highly advised for any of these.
