We were there at the height of the aspen fall color, so brilliant and beautiful! The drive and or walk is amazing. It is a narrow dirt mountain road to be taken with a grain of patience and caution; it is well worth the drive to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

We've often talked about taking the Boreas Pass Road from Breckenridge to Fairplay instead of Hoosier Pass. We finally did yesterday. The fall colors were awesome! We saw a bull, cow, and two moose calves. Well worth the trip!

Aspen trees were in full Fall display. The road is a little bit narrow in a couple of places and there are rocks sticking out/potholes here and there. All the more reason to slow down and enjoy. We visit Breck often and enjoyed having a different way to get there via South Park. Amazing that they built a railroad all... More

Great ride for a picture perfect adventure. Many pull offs to stop and take pictures of the valley below. Well worth the ride.

Aspen colors and overall scenery was great given it was peak color. But the dirt road is full of holes, jagged rocks, and washboard ruts. I'm amazed I didn't blow a tire. Driving 5 mph was common. Recommend a large SUV or heavy duty truck that can handle the terrain more easily.

We were so fortunate to be in Breck during the leaf changing in Sept. Boreas Pass was the PERFECT place to view them and see the town from so high up. It was an easy road to take, even in a small rented Ford Fiesta, and I would HIGHLY recommend you not pass up the views! They were phenomenal!

Several people told us to drive this pass and it was breathtaking! We were not disappointed. The road is a bit narrow in areas but no one is in a hurry driving it so it was ok driving it.

The colors were absolutely beautiful when we took this drive. Recommend you take the drive all the way to Como. We thought the most spectacular views were on way down after going over Boreas pass. Took Highways 285 and 9 back to Breckenridge and the views on both routes were spectacular. A must see.

Rode my bike up Boreas Pass today and the colors are as pretty as I've seen anywhere in Colorado. Don't miss this year. About 6.5 miles up the dirt is the Boreas Pass Summit at about 11,500 feet. Ride up was a gentle grade from Breck side. Very dusty today but soooooooo worth it!
