Driving From Denver

I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a decent route, other than 70, to take to Breckenridge. I'd just like a recommendation, for some good scenery.

I-70 although an interstate, provides some gorgeous scenery! As well as several pull-overs for scenic views.

A few alternative routes are to take 285 from Denver to Fairplay, turn on to US9 and then go over Hoosier Pass entering Breck from the South. Or exit off I-70 right before the Eisenhower tunnel on to Loveland Pass and take that past A-Basin and Keystone. Then take Swan Mountain road around the lake and turn left on 9 to enter Breck from the north.

I would vote going over Loveland Pass...awesome views up top and you can get out and walk along the continental divide if you want.

I agree with Matt.

I would do as 1fourfun suggested and take Loveland Pass over the Divide, then take Swan Mountain Road. If the weather is nice, I would get out and do the very short walk out on Swan Mountain Road where there is a lookout over the reservoir.

The views along the interstate are beautiful.
