Sidling up to Mount Royal
South of Main Street adjacent to public lands, Mountain Side subdivision surrounds the condos of the same name, but is a cluster of single-family and duplex homes, built around the same time as the condos.
Built from 1983 to 1990, Mountain Side's 82 homes are mostly 3 bedroom; a few are 2-bedroom or 4-bedroom, and one tops the list with five. A home for sale in Mountain Side will range from 1,300 to 3,800 square feet in living area - most are around 1,800 sq. ft.. Many of the Mountainside homes are duplexes surrounded by a one-quarter acres lot. A handful (5) have 1/2 acre lots or larger and were custom built. All the Mountain Side homes have garages, and some have a walkout basement.
In Mountainside, the land is surprisingly flat, and the architecture suburban. Garages and drives are street facing, and the homes are usually two-story, wood frame construction with standard horizontal siding on the exterior.

Out the back - to the south - of this neighborhood is national forest and the many trails that meander between Miners creek and Tenmile Creek at the base of Mount Royal. The trail up Mount Royal is steep - about 1.5 hours to the top - but rewards with a drop-off spectacular view of Tenmile Canyon. The view from the top is nearly circular, except that the entire spine of the Tenmile Range is at your back as you look down on the entrance to Frisco. More trail entices you to climb to Peak 1 and more.
Just past the Mountain Side Condo buildings you'll find the county-wide paved bike path. This path can lead you to Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, Silverthorne, Dillon or Keystone.
Rainbow Lake is above the bike path, a short hike to the southeast. Near the lake you'll also find the Peaks Trail that is a 10 mile trail that's perfect for cross-country skiers, snowshoers, mountain bikers and hikers. Also called the Frickenridge Trail, it connects Frisco to the Breckenridge ski resort. Ride the gondola down to downtown Breckenridge and take the free Summit Stage back to your home in Mountain Side.
