If you like a little history with your fall colors then this is heaven. Well maintained dirt road from Breckenridge to Como with fantastic views and a slice of Colorado history, from mining to trains to a train stop ghost town this trail has it all. You do not need a 4x4. People with bus rv's regularly take the trip.... More

From this vantage point on the opposite side of the valley from the ski area, you get a great view over the town and the full extent of the slopes. Well worth a trip up there.

Whether you travel this Jeep road in the summer or fall, you won't be disappointed with the sites. Best fall colors. You can ride your biker to the pass, drive a car or Jeep as well. Road is well maintained.

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!!!
