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!

We stayed at the Breckenridge Lodge and Spa so we were on the Boreas Pass road at least twice a day. Gorgeous. Didn't go but about a mile but WOW the views!

They salt and plow the road everyday starting at about 6am in the winter. 4 wheel drive is a lot safer to have, but you COULD manage it with 2 wheel.

This is a great road to give "every day drivers", to get a feel for what more off-road ready folks get to experience. Also, the historic buildings at the top of the pass are worth checking out.

Fall is the time to see this! If you are driving from Breckenridge to Denver in the fall, take an extra hour take this route.

We go to Breck a couple times a year. When weather permits (no snow), we go down Hwy 285 to Como, Co & turn right and travel over the well maintained gravel road & come into Breck from the "back side". We enjoy the views and the trees in the fall. SUV's can make it with ease. I've seen quite... More

While our daughter and her husband snow boarded, we drove up the Boreas Pass Road and enjoyed breathtaking vistas. It ends in a trail which we walked partially up. We shared it with a lot of cross country walkers and their dogs. It was a quiet respite and a very pleasant way to spend our time in Breck.

We were in Breck late December/early January with a group of 9. My husband and I opted out of skiing for a day to hike/walk Boreas Pass. It is a beautiful trail with breathtaking views. The trek out is a bit strenuous as it is all uphill (not very steep, but uphill none-the-less!) and coming from NYC, we were effected... More
