Frisco Northside Neighborhoods
A few small neighborhoods of single-family and duplex homes developed on the northside of Main Street in Frisco near the meanders of Ten Mile Creek. These subdivisions have names like 5th Avenue Landing, Fourth Estates and River Pines.
Walking from these homes to Main Street with skis on your shoulder isn't too bad and once there you'll find shuttle stops for the free county-wide bus system. Across the creek and up the bluff is the Frisco Duck Sub and Frisco Heights, which is not officially incorporated into the town. The creek crossing is on more even grade on the west side of Frisco. Neighborhoods like Frisco Park and Village are just a bridge over Ten Mile Creek and a few blocks away from all the restaurants and shops Frisco has to offer.
From the northside, the Summit Boulevard commercial strip is an easy bike ride away to stores such as Whole Foods. The bike path runs partially along this part of Frisco and connects with the county-wide network that extends from Breckenridge to Copper Mountain and Keystone.
Westerly, but just north of Main Street is the small King Solomen, single-family, infill subdivision, near the Backcountry Cabins and the conveniently located Windstream Townhomes and Galena Street Townhomes.
Northside Condos are: Scattered Pines Condo and River Glen Condos.
The large town park called Walter Byron Park is situated along Ten Mile Creek with nearby public tennis courts. The Frisco Nordic Center grooms more trails and has more diversity of trail type than any other cross-country ski center in the county.
Mountain biking at the Frisco Peninsula on the southeast side of town is incredibly popular and can be easily reached by northside dwellers by use of the bike path. The north end of Frisco is bounded by I-70 so one must cross underneath it to get to the Lily Pad Lake trail along the flanks of Buffalo Mountain and Uneva Peak. Tenmile trail begins just across I-70 at the western exit for Frisco. With national forest directly on the southern border of Frisco, trails head up Mount Royal directly from southside neighborhoods. Frisco is small and and from some northside neighborhoods, it's only 4 or 5 blocks to a national forest boundary.
