We have driven Boreas Road from Breckenridge many times. It is maintained with the exception of in the winter. It is fine to drive a 2 wheel vehicle but I prefer to drive it with a high all wheel drive SUV. I have driven it after the snow melt and Boreas was a real mess with mud, slush and potholes.... More

I took the short drive from Breckenridge with my wife and young girls (7 & 10), not really knowing what we would see. It had snowed a couple days earlier, and we found exactly what other reviewers have been describing -- a tranquil and beautiful trail with stunning views. Well worth the time.

Definitely a nice drive. Once you get to the top you can look down on downtown Breck. Beautiful street lamps to guide the path.

We walked up this road to get some pictures, and it was an incredible view. I would like to go back in the fall to see how it looks when it's not entirely covered in snow. Highly recommend for sightseeing and photography.

The most treacherous pass I have ever seen when it is snowing; reverse banked 90 degree corners, in a 4x4 I still went sideways due to the slippery road. Saw multiple accidents and stuck vehicles; AVOID if it is snowing!!!

This drive is breath taking! We just kept driving and driving. The road at places get narrow and wide but always straight down on one side. The most beautiful views and great hikes.

Decided to take a break from skiing and wanted to find a place to take pictures. Took a hike on the Boreas Pass road since it was closed (not maintained after November). Nice little find...Started walking and wasn't sure how far how long I would have to walk before I found a good view but it wasn't too long. I... More

This road follows the old railroad line that connected Como and Breckenridge. In the fall it becomes jammed with people looking at the changing colors.

We went up to see the truth & it delivers. I think this pass should be visited any season for a good scenic view.

Boreas Pass (Como to Breckenridge over the mountain), which is only open in the summer months, is a beautiful drive with many, many places to stop for photo ops. You'll encounter wildlife, flower-filled meadows, great mountain views, clear mountain streams and old mining ruins. We've only done this route in the car, but you'll also see hikers and occasionally bikers,... More
