Nice drive to the top of the pass, where you will find remains of the town that was responsible to keep the tracks clear and train running. The road follows the narrow gauge track that was there. Plenty of hiking at the top and you...More

Since our hotel -- Gold Point -- was up at the top of Boreas Pass Road, we had no real choice but to travel it daily. It was spectacular every time, and made us glad that we were beyond and far above the hubbub of...More

Nice views of mountains and forests while driving to and from Gold Point Resort. Also, a look at some very nice mountain homes, of which several can be rented for larger groups.

Nearly anywhere in Breckenridge, you can see the mountains. Up on this dirt road, there really wasn't any better view than down below. Earlier on this vacation, I have driven Pikes Peak and Old Fall River Road in Estes Park. By comparison, Boreas Pass Road...More

Great spot for perfect sunset overlook. The gravel road is very drivable for the average car, great exercise bike ride or beginner bike ride. Hiking the road can be a bit dusty with cars on the road. There are plenty of trails thru the forest...More

This is a fun drive; best in an SUV as a fair amount of the road is rough and rocky. Great views around every corner and lots of places to pull over. There aren't many folks on this road so it's nice to have some...More

We drove up every day for a week to get to our condo (Gold Point Resort) Hell of a ride, but the road is wide enough and in fine condition so that a driver need not be wary.

The Boreas Pass Rd. starts just at the end of Main Street in Breck. Easy to find. Took the drive nice and slow, as you really can't go fast. As everyone mentions, the road is very narrow and made of gravel. Wasn't a hard drive,...More

We drove this old railroad pass from Breckenridge to Como then drove the highway from Como through Fairplay back to Breckenridge. The history is very interesting and the views were amazing.

What TomAB9 said. I would only add that the road gets narrow at times for two cars to pass and so you might use some caution when approaching vehicles in the opposit direction.

First of all, if you are heading for Steamboat, rent a 4wd SUV. We are having an epic snow year. You will be able to get around much better in a 4wd. The other answers are correct-you wont get very far up Boreas in... More
