Beautiful drive

I have done this pass twice. In good weather, it is beautiful. The railroad artifacts at the top are very interesting as well.

This is a great drive just outside of Breckenridge, Colorado. If you just go to the summit and then return to Breckenridge, you can make the trip in just a few hours. The road turns into a dirt road just outside of town. There are a few areas of the road that are narrow and only provide space for one... More

Boreas Pass Road is a great way to see the back country near Breckenridge. The road is dirt for 90% of the crossing but is very well maintained. Need to be careful as traffic is two way and the road is one lane in some portions. The summit is the continental divide and has older historic structures. Take 3-4 hours... More

This scenic road is a great way to get stunning views of Breckenridge Ski mountains and the Blue Rive valley. I would recommend stopping in Fairplay own the way back to see the South Park Historical center.

Drove the Boreas Pass Road in July - unfortunately amidst the Breck 100 Mountain Bike race. We felt bad about being in the way of the cyclists, but they did not seem to mind. Views are great, but the driver cannot risk taking his/her eyes off the road - so stop at pullouts for photos. Road is rougher at the... More

Although it is a County Road & connects Breckenridge to the little town of Como ... it is unpaved but maintaned. This little road is well used by both vehicles, bicyclers, hikers and nature and history enthusiests. There are many hiking trails along this beautiful stretch of road plus it is a perfect place to take the family for a... More

This is a gorgeous drive out of Breckenridge. Very nice hikes are easily accessible from this road. This would be a great drive in early morning or evening to see wildlife. Can be rough in areas and make sure tires are in good shape. Very narrow in places so keep to the speed limit.

We took 285 and Boreas Pass from Denver to Breckenridge. It was a beautiful drive and had gorgeous views throughout the entire drive. We were the only car on the road for a lot of it, so we felt comfortable driving at our own pace and not worrying about the steep and fast paced alternate I-70. It is a bit... More

We got married at the Lodge & Spa Breckenridge and drove up Boreas Pass for some amazing mountain backdrops.
