The Friends of Breckenridge Trails is a program designed to provide an opportunity for locals and visitors to participate in the upkeep of the fragile habitats, open spaces and trail systems unique to the Town of Breckenridge.
Through volunteer efforts, Town open spaces, trails, historic sites and ecologically sensitive areas are maintained and restored, thereby creating fun opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.
