This is always a fun road to cross the mountains and get over to Como and route 285. Great scenery, a few bumps and the old water tower and remnants of the railroad are fun for the kids to see and learn about the many railroads we used to have in Colorado. Takes longer than Hoosier Pas on route 9... More

Drove up to the watertower, hiked up to the treeline...great for kids! A little steep in spots, but my 10, 8, and 6 year old did great and wanted to go back!

We took this drive on a beautiful summer day. About 30 minutes to the top and 15 minutes down. Steep and dangerous drop offs, but well worth the trip. Lots of cool animals, grand vistas, and the old buildings and cabins at the top were very cool. Definitely worth a visit.

Fun road with great views. Can be a little scary. Bring your camera. Road is one lane and can be hard to turn around.

Drove the length of this dirt road. About 15 miles. Some parts are a bit rough, after the rains, especially, but it is drivable in just about any type of car. The best views are in the first couple of miles on the north (Breckenridge) side. There is small forestry office at the top of the pass, at elevation 11,493... More

I actually don't want to popularize this route as it was so nice and UNcrowded! Beautiful road with views and a cool old railroad town at the summit. Some areas are one car width only. Slow but fun drive!

On Saturday we drove over Boreas Pass from Como (East) to Breck (West.) This is a fantastic Colorado experience that can be done in a two wheel drive car. My Hyundai Elantra GT took the road like a champ. On the east side the road is the worst but still not bad. The worst is on the steep climb right... More

We enjoyed driving and waking along historic Boreas Pass road above Breckenridge. We stayed at Rock Ridge II condos. We especially enjoyed driving and walking along Blue River and stopping at various parks.

We hiked it first, and then took the road after. We enjoyed doing both. The road is narrow and straight down at times, but the views are amazing!!! The water tower at the end is very cool as well.
