Trail Information

Highlights

The Brewery Hill 4WD trail is tightly wooded trail that traverses the Golden Horseshoe trail system. Brewery Hill varies from steep and rocky to slick and muddy. Brewery Hill is part of the Golden Horseshoe trail system which covers over 8000 acres between the Swan River and French Gulch. The area has a rich history and is dotted with countless mines, mills, and cabins dating from the late 1870s through the 1950s. The Golden Horseshoe is crisscrossed with 4WD, ATV, single track, mountain bike and foot trails. Keep a sharp eye out for other folks using this network and, as always, be considerate. Stay the trail, and pack out what you packed in.

16" of snow reported in Breckenridge this weekend. The surrounding trails will all be impassible. Most likely a season ender for the area.

Nice simple trail. It's pretty narrow in most spots and makes it difficult for opposite traffic to pass.

We hit up The Golden Horseshoe today. All the trails are open except for this American Gulch. Brewery Hill was pretty muddy. Good news, though. The mud pit has a good solid bottom. No issues.

We drove the entire length of this trail from the top down to Tiger Rd. There were patches of snow but they had all previously been driven over so there were no issues driving through them. The mud pit obstacle at waypoint 3 wasn't any issue at all. In fact, we went through that area and I didn't even notice it (maybe cover by snow).

Loved Brewery Hill. Tight trail with lots of challenges for a Subaru. Not many pullouts to pass. Fortunately we didn't meet anyone. Forest was really thick and green from all the rain this summer.
