Family Hiking Quick Tips 

Leave No Trace 

Always make sure to follow the Leave No Trace principles when enjoying the outdoors: pack it in and pack it out (trash, waste, dog poop, etc.), pick up trash along the trail, stick to the trail (avoid side trails and shortcuts) and leave the trail better than when you arrived. 

Bring Layers 

The weather can change quickly in the high alpine! Make sure you are always prepared with moisture-wicking layers. Afternoon storms are common, so having a packable rain jacket and a warm layer will ensure you are prepared no matter the weather.  

Pack the Necessities 

Always make sure to pack a reusable water bottle and fill it up before your hike! In addition, the sun is much stronger due to the high altitude of Breckenridge, so make sure to apply sunscreen ahead of time and bring extra to reapply as needed.
