Just a long dirt road with lots of great scenery. I saw lots of good places to mountain bike, and plenty of little side trails off of the main road. It was a little rocky, so I probably wouldn't drive it in a regular car, but pretty much every vehicle out there would be able to make it.

Beautiful drive even though we missed the Aspen trees at their peak. Gravel road was pretty slow in some places due to ruts but no problems - just took our time which allowed us more time to soak up the sun and vistas. Walked around the buildings at the pass and drove down to Como. Looped back to Breckenridge through Fairplay and Alma.

Beautiful drive to see all the mountain range surrounding Breckenridge!! It is amazingly beautiful, peaceful, and many options to get out of your vehicle and hike as well. Great trails.

Hiked 3 days ago. Beautiful views. Still snow covered but fine with spikes and gaiters.

Basically just a dirt road. Any vehicle can make it to the top. Gorgeous view of yellow trees during the fall.

An easily accessible dirt road with great fall color and beautiful views. We started on the Southern end of Brekenridge turning off hwy 9 onto Boreas Pass Road and drove up to the station cabin. The buildings were all closed when we got there but the drive up was wonderful. (I'd like to come back and hike Bakers Tank and Black Powder.) We continued down to Como catching hwy 285 to Fairplay and then hwy 9 back North to where we started in Brek. It was a wonderful afternoon drive.

We drove this from Como to Breckenridge. Beautiful views on the switchbacks. Enjoyed throwing snowballs at the top. Interesting sites to check out and explore all along the way.

This was a very easy trail that did not require 4 wheel drive. The beginning out of Breckenridge is steep dropoffs and well travelled by hikers and bicyclists and provided some spectacular views looking back at the ski slopes. The end of the road had panoramic views looking down on the town of Como. But most of the road was pretty non-descript. The buildings at the pass that were supposed to have info on the old railroad were closed the day we were there.
