breathtaking views

About a ten minute drive from Breckenridge. We stopped at the Lodge Hotel on our way up to the pass. Take a walk out back of the lodge the view is breathtaking.

In Fall the photo ops are amazing as the aspens turn gold. Great views over Goos Pasture Tarn and planty of old railroadiana. This used to be the main (rail) route into Breck - drive it in summer, snowshoe/snowmobile in winter. one or two narrow passes with large drops off one side but a great experience

Very nice drive- 4WD is not usually necessary, though clearance may be an issue for some vehicles at certain times of the year. Lots of areas to pull off and hike or explore.

An absolute must drive for viewing the fall colors in Colorado. We always go from the Highway 285/Jefferson side toward Breckinridge. Less traffic. Also on the Breck side, you run in to a lot of mountain bikers. Bring the cameras!!!

We had a great time enjoying all the snow and nature. Luckily there were not many people on the trail so we felt like we had the area to ourselves. Spectacular views and not too challenging for two out of shape people.

We hiked about a mile and a half in. It was a gorgeous day to walk through fresh snow. It was 20 degrees but with the sun breaking through the clouds, it was a nice hike up. We had an amazing view of Breckenridge. Worth the trip and a nice break from skiing.

Not referring to the trail, which I've never done ( prefer downhill), the actual road has great views. The Lodge hotel and it's restaurant is a good place to enjoy the view.

We were there in September so we drove through the Pass and got to see all the beautiful Aspens turning yellow and check out all of the mining refuse sliding down the mountains. For me it was breathtaking and scary all at the same time.

We stayed at the Lodge at Breckenridge which is off of this scenic drive. Seriously, every drive in this area is scenic to me. Iced road in the winter!

Great place to walk/snowshoe or cross country. Gets a lot of use, so unless it has snowed recently you can probably walk it in snow boots..at least for the first couple of miles. Is extremely popular at weekends and the parking area is pretty small so come early or during the week. The trail head is also the trail head... More
