Even though our hike was interrupted by a monsoon shower, the trail was lined by wildflowers even though we were a little late for the peak bloom. It was hard to believe that folks actually lived here year around to maintain the railraod.

Drove up the Boreas Pass Road during our visit to Breckenridge and really enjoyed the drive as we were not in a rush and we were able to enjoy it. You do need to be careful of vehicles sharing the road and also there are a few spots where you will need extra care due to some rough road conditions... More

We drove this pass early morning. It was so beautiful, feeling totally invigorated by the fresh air, the quiet all around us and the beauty of God's world. The guys also rode their bikes. It was a challenge both ways!!!

Beautiful drive in rocky, narrow dirt road. The trick is to have a driver you totally trust- which I thankfully do! Prettiest scenery and interesting history of the railroad and history in the area in the 1800's. Gorgeous views- here's a few.

Boreas Pass road is a dirt road and is narrow at points and its an average of 10 miles per hour to drive up it, so it does take a good hour to go a few miles. Navigating in the dark is not the easiest and you should have an SUV. It is a little scary at points when the... More

Great way to get family members not as mobile as the rest out and up the mountain. Road not paved but most of it in pretty good shape. Amazing views and plentiful turn-offs if you want to stop and get out.

Lovely road with many winding turns and one-way access. Not for the faint of heart but well worth it for the views.

Really amazing views as you drive up to the pass from Breckenridge. Possible the worst condition road I've been on for a scenic drive with some very rocky terrain at certain points that had be praying I wouldn't puncture a tire. Overall though a worthwhile journey if your vehicle and your nerves can handle it.

The views were absolutely beautiful! Much of the road was dirt and a little scary when you met traffic.
