At roughly 9,100 feet above sea level, Frisco sits in the heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. The Tenmile Range, perfect for hiking and biking adventures, stretches from downtown Frisco to Breckenridge. In addition to exploring historic Main Street and taking a side trip to the Lake Dillon Marina, the town is an excellent starting point for many Colorado activities.
Frisco is an easy drive to one of the state’s newest zip-line courses in Idaho Springs. Simply hop on I-70 and you’re less than an hour away from our five-tower Canopy Tour along Clear Creek. Take the highway east (toward Denver) to Exit 240 at the little mining town of Idaho Springs. You’ll see our tall, wooden zip-line launch towers before you even get to the exit. Our base camp offices are located right inside the historic Argo Gold Mine & Mill. Stick around awhile in this area and you’ll start to feel what it was like back in the gold rush days of Colorado.
Clear Creek is a fun, technical stretch with white water rafting options including beginner, intermediate and advanced adventures, as well as 1/3-day, 1/2-day and full-day rafting trips. Call for combination Zip & Raft trip pricing and details. 1-800-808-0367
Imagine a place that boomed with the Colorado gold rush, dropped in population to 18 people, then sprang back up with the rise of tourism and outdoor adventure. No need to imagine, that place is Frisco. And there’s a reason why the county now draws some 3 million visitors each year. Blue skies, miles of hiking trails, paved bike paths, Gold Medal fishing waters and horseback riding make it a place everyone wants to stay.
For those not as interested in outdoor pursuits, Frisco offers more than adventure. Don’t forget to explore the shopping on Main Street, the shores of Lake Dillon and the many historical sites throughout town. A real Rocky Mountain town, Frisco is the perfect place to begin your next Colorado hipline adventure.
