4 stars because it’s a Jeep road. However, it’s a fun hike and you can branch off to North Star. The cars started to come up at 11:20, just as I was finishing. Lovely views for sure

Wanted to see some Aspens. There were none.

For this Texan with a family of 6 it was pure beauty. The hike up to the peak was moderate and kids did great. I just didn’t realize how afraid of cliffs I am though...lol. The trail at the top on your way down was not marked as well but you can find your footing as long as you keep going (even though at times it looks like your kids are walking over a cliff). There was also a pretty steep dusty slope to get down to finish the loop back to your vehicles but it was fine if you take it slow. Such majestic beauty must be seen though!

2nd time I finally found the right trail! turn left at the 2nd turn off past the leavick parking lot. we parked where the road forked and hiked. about .75 miles into the hike you'll see Horseshoe. Just follow the road/trail. Lots of cool mining relics on the way. The lakes below look really pretty and coming back down we did see a Jeep but that was pretty much the 1st person my friend and I saw the entire hike. At the saddle between peerless and horseshoe the views are amazing and we climbed higher I'm not sure we made the "summit" but we we're well over 13,000ft and content. I would recommend it for how quiet it is compared to seeing the tons of cars/people headed to Sherman

Incredible views! A pretty challenging hike for our kids ages 2-8 but we ascended quite high and they were so proud of themselves. A truly beautiful spot between Breck and Alma!

Great views along the trail. The trail itself is somewhat boring. Not well-marked, but you're not going to get lost either. Basically a jeep road, so the trail itself is not terribly interesting, and as others have commented it's open with no shade. It's definitely not strenuous. Might be a bit more fun on a mountain bike.

Great views all the way. Wildflowers and mountain goats. Start early to miss the afternoon showers.

Amazing views of the mountains and the reservoir. The 360 from the top is breath taking.

great views when you're towards the top, but the trail is confusing.

Really beautiful hike through gorgeous pine forest and the reward at the top is the view of the lake. Lived this hike. Had all weather. Rain, fog, sun and heat.

My husband and I hiked this trail and we were surprised at how easy it was for us considering we were still getting adjusted to altitude. There was definitely alot of up hill action but so worth it.

Beautiful! But we are from 650ft above sea level and this hike starts at 11,542..
Not sure what elevation at top is.
The app we used rated easy. And it was
Altitude got us for the 1st 15minutes....
Majestic mountains!!!

Did this hike 8/8. Beautiful hike but definitely not difficult. Shared the trail with a quite a few bikers who all didn’t understand that the trail was to be shared.

Enjoyed this hike this morning! Mountain goats in the distance and views were amazing. We went all the way to the top. Took our time on the steep sections so as to keep it fun. Not to difficult if you get an early start and take your time.

Nice warm up hike on our second day in Colorado. A good hike to acclimate yourself to the altitude. Park near the Hoosier pass sign and follow the trail/dirt road. If you make a left and follow the road, the trail curves around for about 2 miles then heads up the Summit with a quick descent. If you make a right, you will make it to the top faster. Had a large group who did it ages 9 all the way up to 69 (and a toddler in a back pack).

This is def on the easy side of moderate. Gorgeous views and the lake is serene and pretty. This would be a great option for Day 1 for flatlanders. Keep in mind, the trail is totally open and not shaded at all. You’ll need sunscreen.

I did this hike the middle of July. The wildflowers were amazing and there were many beautiful and unique rocks all surrounded by wonderful mountain peaks. Great hike. Pretty easy even though it climbs the whole way. Note: Boreas Pass Rd. that you have to take to reach hike features 6 miles of bad dirt road although it is passable to 2 wheel drive vehicles.

Not strenuous unless you want to keep a strong pace. A few options off of one trail loop to extend the hike as long as you like. The trail is a Jeep road going up to a right turn to a smaller trail descending back to the lower portion of the inward portion.

What a great hike. We started around 930 and took an easy pace. Scenery was amazing and the 5 of us really enjoyed it.

Nice, well maintained trails. beautiful views of the mountains and wildflowers. Lots of pika and other small animals near the ruins a bit past the loop. Well worth the hike.

Good mix of terrain, gorgeous views from the very top!

Beautiful hike. The wildflowers were in bloom along the trail. The first part is fairly level, so even if you cannot handle to hike to the continental divide it is worth taking this hike. We made it to the saddle where we enjoyed our lunch as we viewed the other side of the mountain. Hope you repeat this hike on our next trip to Breckenridge.

My husband and I did the Baker’s Tank Boreas Pass Rd hike today. We got started late and were rained on a bit but it was worth it! We thought it was easy to moderate (inclines) and there were a few bikers on the trail, but we mostly had it to ourselves. Many beautiful flowers and trees to look at and we even found a log to sit on in a sunny spot to look out over the magnificent views! Perfect stream near the Bakers Tank and many campsites along the road going down. Many, many breathtaking views from the road! We had a great day and would do it again!

One of the coolest hikes I have been on in a while. Would definitely like to do it again.

The trail was great. Tons of wildflowers and gorgeous vistas. Well marked and easy to navigate. Saw some fellow hikers, kids and dogs but overall not too crowded. Took us about 3 hours up and back. Loved it.
