Drove Boreas Pass Road from Como to Breckenridge on gravel and dirt roads. Views and wildflowers were spectacular, especially as you approach Boreas Pass from Como. Much less spectacular from the Pass to Breckenridge.

You will not regret this drive. No problems in a mini van. I would turn around at the rail car, as the views are not as nice after that.

We were staying right at the bottom of the dirt road, we hiked about a mile up one morning early, it was beautiful, chilly. There were a couple of cabins tucked in and you can see a river flowing. The next day we drove a few miles up, it took aout 30 mins, and we had to be really careful.... More

It was a bit of a drive from Breck to the top, approx. half hour. Beautiful views and we saw a fox on the way. We visited the top and then drove on to Como. The Como Depot Eating House was closed so we continued on to Fairplay and found Millonzi's. So worth it!

What a wonderful way to spend a June day in Breckenridge! The mountain views were amazing all the way up to the top. The ride is bumpy with lots of dips and rocks. Also beware of bikers along the side of the road. Breathtaking scenery the entire way.

The remains of the train tracks, water fill tower (for steam powered trains) and the train displayed at the summit makes this a trip with views and a bit of history. Boreas was one of the easiest access roads/mountain passes and this is still true today. You don't need clearance of a 4WD vehicle, we did this this safely in... More

Road wasn't open yet, but parked and walked for great pics. The road is open in June, so just missed it. There was still a lot of snow up there. Great views of town of Breckenridge from up there.

You drive up a winding gravel road until you come to the pass. It's a bumpy ride but well worth it. There's a small visitor center and breathtaking scenery.

We attempted to drive Boreas Pass road, but the roads were extremely windy, and we weren't sure where the right way was. We saw some beautiful views, but we were unable to travel most of the road! It was confusing! It also took us on a dirt road? It was difficult to travel without a truck!

It was to muddy to hike due to warm weather, but the ride up the mountain was breath taking. It is a must do when in Brek!
