I like to run on Boreas Pass road in the summer or hike on it in the Winter when the pass in closed. This is a LONG road and there are no services, so make sure you are gassed up!

We took a drive on the road out of curiosity. The road was well paved and maintained because there are many excellent homes and developments along the way. There is very little commercial development or services. But it is only a short drive back down to Breckenridge. There are a couple of nice scenic pull outs that give a majestic... More

Beautiful scenic drive. In the summer only, closed in wnter. Can be a little bumpy, but the views are hard to beat. Historic train station at the summit is well worth the stop and then loop back to Breckenridge on Hwy 9. Stop at the Brown Burro for lunch and Al-Mart for shopping.

I traversed across Boreas Pass just East of Breckenridge. Boreas Pass will take you across the divide over to South Park where US 285 exists. This is an old trail bed from when the trains went from Como, CO to Breckenridge in the silver mining days. Road is well maintained during the summer months, but not passable after Winter and...

This is a nice scenic route to get back to Denver, especially in the fall. Once you are on it just drive all the way to the little town at the end where you can take 285 back to Denver. We did a short hike at the top.

If you have a car and are in Breckenridge, this is a must do. Gives you a look into the times past when this was a railroad pass. Do not need 4 wheel drive for this pass, I have even done it one time in a minivan. If you happen to get here when the leaves are changing, make sure... More

My wife and I revisited our happy memories of an earlier fall trip along Boreas Pass Road in September. Every time is like the first time. We got in a bit of a tiff in the car because my wife is a planner and wants to get places. I tend to get distracted and want to meander making me late... More
