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.

The views are amazing, so close to town, go in the evening for sunset. Lovely and easy to find. Look for moose in the water below!

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

I rode my bike up from the trailhead - great ride. On the way back down I took the singletrack at Baker's tank. Incredible views and great work out!

We took the Boreas Pass on a lark. So glad we had good tires on our rental car! Much of the pass is not paved and parts are only one car wide. It was beautiful with the fall foiliage.

Beautiful road overlooking Breck. We were lucky enough to stay at the top to get a beautiful view of the slopes and the town.

Definitely a nice drive to see all the changing of the aspen leaves. There is a section of the road that is no longer paved and is a little bumpy at times. We were in a sedan rental car and made it fine, but we did have to slow down a few times. Took us well over an hour to... More

We went the last weekend of September and the timing was optimal for aspen colors. It's a moderate grade and not intimidating. It had rained and was full of puddles but nothing at all difficult. We made a loop from Denver on I-70 to Breckenridge and back to Denver on 285 which was more pretty driving. It's close whether this... More
