This is a gravel road and you need to go slowly, but you get terrific views from up here. There are places to pull over and hike.

This is the week to take the drive the aspen trees are in full color. Go slow and be courteous of other drivers, hikers and bikers.

A basic mountain road, but beautiful in September! The aspens are plentiful and beautiful along Boreas Pass Road!
