The Boreas Pass road is the other way to get to Breck, you come in from the south. It has a place to park at the top. There is snow shoeing in the winter and hiking in the summer. It is a beautiful drive that...More

My dad and I took this drive on the way south towards Colorado Springs. There are some very nice leaf spotting areas and the overall drive is fairly spectacular.

Easily drivable with a regular passenger car, this Mountain Pass Drive is well worth doing. Phenomenal views, beautiful aspens, and scenery that is hard to find in the low lands. Though most of it is on a dirt road, the road is well cared for...More

This unpaved road meanders across the mountains allowing for many stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. There are several great places to stop to hand hike and can easily be made into entertainment for a full day.

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
