“Frisco has some of the best biking and hiking trails in Colorado and summer is the perfect time to get out and take advantage of the amazing views,” said Suzanne Lifgren, director of marketing and communications for Town of Frisco. “Enjoy the outdoors during the week, then splurge on the weekend with barbecue.”
With 80 miles of non-motorized paved paths, the options for biking and hiking enthusiasts are endless. Water lovers can enjoy an afternoon at the Frisco Kayak Park or spend the morning casting with a scenic fly fishing experience. For those that live life on the edge – literally - drop in on the downhill slope-style course, dirt jump or pump track at the Frisco Adventure Park.
The Colorado Barbecue Challenge kicks-off Thursday night, June 14 with live music from The Motet. Friday and Saturday will follow with plenty of family fun including, the Bacon Burner, a 5K run on Saturday, June 16th at 9:30 a.m., pig races, kids games, more live music and more than 60 barbecue teams offering their best barbecue fare.
