Go for a walk anywhere around Breckenridge in the summer, and you’ll see a rainbow of wildflower colors everywhere you turn. The local trails, sidewalks around town, and woods provide a wild colorful experience for you and your camera.
Most of these photos were taken on an easy walk down the Pence Miller trail, from the Ski Hill road overlook, under the gondola, all the way to town. The Wild Iris and Golden Banner were spotted at the Riverwalk Center sidewalk right in the middle of town – growing wild, and not in a landscaped garden.
While the flowers change and bloom at different times during the summer, you’ll always be able to catch a bright colorful show. If you take the same walk a couple weeks later, you’ll notice new blooms and a different scene. Enjoy wildflower season!
The Breckenridge Welcome Center in town at the Riverwalk has local info about trails. For an extensive resource on day hiking, see the forest service page on Breckenridge hiking in the Dillon Ranger District.
