This pass is a beautiful trip, that goes between South Park (Como) and Breckenridge. The road however is dirt and is passable by SUV, but there are some rough areas, so anything with low ground clearance could encounter some troubles. There are several bicyclists that...More

If you want a fairly low threat way to see some stunning high alpine scenery, Boreas Pass Road is just the ticket. If you are also possessed of hearty legs and lungs, it makes a fine bike ride as well, with opportunities to loop back...More

This is a dirt road pass but a low clearance vehicle will have no problems on it. The views are spectacular but caution with the high altitude. Acclimate to the altitude before you vent on it!

The road was originally a narrow gauge railroad line connecting Como and Breck. As such the grade is never that steep making it excellent for pedaling, cross country skiing and the like. I've driven this road in the fall for fantastic foliage and snowshoed and...More
