this is a road that I would think would be very seasonal. probably unpassable in winter. but, if you are there at the peak of the aspens, this it IT! plan to spend plenty of time for the gravel part of the road. if you do the loop, you cross over the continental divide both on this road and Hoosier...

We hit it just right for the Aspens. The views along the road are spectacular when the Aspens are changing colors. In some places they overlap the road. Also has great views of the Breckenridge ski slopes. But beware that much of the road is unpaved and quite bumpy and rocky in some areas.

We did the entire road from Breckenridge to Como,Colorado. This ride is not for the faint of heart as it runs very high and some parts of it are very narrow, but the views are breathtaking!!! This time of year is probably the best time to do the ride as all the Aspen trees have turned color and looking down... More

Boreas Pass Road follows the 1800 and 1900 narrow gage rail line between the 3 point rail hub at Como and Breckenridge, CO. This was the 2nd leg of a 3 leg golden aspen watching loop. Starting in Como, CO, the first mile of gravel roadway was barely a car/suv and a half wide, requiring stopping and yielding to/by oncoming... More

Beautiful day so we drove up as far as the views of the lake - absolutely beautiful. Aspens, huge rocks and sweeping views make this a must do drive. The road is very well maintained after the pavement ends and there was enough room to easily turn the car around just past the main views of the lake.

Tricky driving all the way to the top, wouldn't do it when wet or snow. Went to the very end and then hiked the Black Powder Trail. Just the drive there and back is worth it, weather permitting. We had a crystal clear sunny day and the views were incredible.

We drove the entire loop that starts on Boreas Pass road in Breck, continues onto a dirt road over to Como, CO, back through Fairplay, CO (the city Southpark takes place in) and finishes on County Road 9 back to Breck. It was very easy to follow & we did it all in a little Toyota Corolla. The best part... More
