This road has some spectacular views. I went in the summer when there was no snow, so I can't speak for the roughness in the winter. There are signs that say the road is not maintained NOV-MAY. However, when there's no snow, the dirt road is certainly passable by car. There are a few bumps and holes, but nothing too... More

Fantastic views and nice bits of history.. Took some time but was totally worth the drive. We were in a rental car and even though the entire pass was a dirt road, we did just fine.

We really enjoyed seeing the wonderful mountain views, especially overlooking the lake. The road was much better than we feared given some reviews, although there were some large potholes. It was mostly wider than single track. The drop offs had lots of trees and there was plenty of room to stay away from the edge.

This is the second time we have made this day triip while visiting Breckenridge. To complete the whole loop from Breckenridge through Fairplay takes 3 or so hours. Be sure to stop at the Boreas Pass on the continental divide. Google maps did a great job.

We drove this route yesterday and it was beautiful. Be prepared though for some narrow bumpy roads at times. You'll need to drive slowly. The views are spectacular and we got out and walked awhile too.

We parked and took the 3 mile loop trail of Baker's Tank. At a point on the trail, the right fork will take you toward the unimproved road which allows great photo ops of Breckenridge and the mountains, with a total of 3 miles of hiking. The left fork is reportedly a 6 mile loop. Easy trail with lots to... More

Get back to nature and see the Rockies from another view point. Do not miss the trip and stop along the way and see mother nature at her best. Visit Como and the depot and roundhouse as it's history that we are lucky to still be able to see.

The road to Boreas Pass is quite bumpy and dusty as you'd expect a mountain climb to be. This one doesn't take very long as it's only about 7 miles to the summit. Once atop Boreas Pass you are greeted with breathtaking views North and South along with some real historic flavor regarding the brave souls who made this their... More
