This is not the original water tank that was used by the rail road. This is a replica built in the 50's. But it is kind of cool to see and I got to explain to my kids what it was used for. We coupled this with a hike from the Section House farther up the Pass and they got... More

After being on multiple beautiful hikes already on my trip. This one didn't come close to comparing to any of them. I could get the same scenery at home. It's really just a bunch of trees and a wooden structure at the end. Nothing special. If you want something more than trees I would recommend McCullough Gulch or Mohawk Lakes.... More

This is a must ride or hike for any outdoors person. The Baker's Tank trail is a 5.5 mile loop beginning with a nice dirt road all the way up to the Tank from the trailhead, which is only a few hundred feet from the end of the paved portion of Boreas Pass Rd. Park there and start your ride... More

Check out this hike in the winter with skins for backcountry skiing or hit it up in the summer for wildflowers and bright green aspen trees OR my favorite in the fall when the aspen are bright yellow and the foliage is orange. Overall a throwback to mining days and a darn pretty trek.

For those who don't want to do a hard hike or big time snowshoeing this walk is great. You can do it in light boots or even tennis shoes if you don't mind getting a bit wet. Park in the lot and gently walk up hill as far as you want. Nice slope downhill back to the car. Views of... More

Drive appx. 5 miles from Brekenridge up Boreas Pass Road to the tank. The road is narrow but is a good gravel road. At Bakers Tank there is a large area to park and turn around if you don't want to continue on to Fairplay. This tank was a water tank for the rail road that used to cross this... More
