The entire first part or this trail is thru forrest and a lovely hike if you like walking thru forrest. I love this hike and especially walking back the road with magnificent views. Sure some cars pass and a bit of dust flys but you are going to take a shower later anyway. I probably would avoid doing the road on weekends when car and bike traffic would be heavier. I only ran into four bikers today Tuesday. The views not to be missed. Look forward to doing it again.

Walked the entire loop from Breckenridge. A very good hike through forest, both Fir and Aspen. Recommend the trail side uphill, road side downhill. Arrived early, minimal trail biker engagement.

This is more of a mountain biking trail. The first half is almost all mountain bikers so you end up stopping every few minutes to wait for them. And the second half is a shadeless dirt road with cars blazing by and leaving you in a dust cloud. The views are normal for this region so there’s no need to go on this hike.

Incredible views of the peaks! The trail side is really nice, bummer that it ends going down the road (for hiking, at least). Easy parking, mostly ran into mountain bikers.

Hiked up the wide and clear Boreas Pass Road. Ate lunch at the top under Baker’s Tank and then hiked back down the Baker’s Tank trail. Be prepared for snow!! We hiked for at least an hour through intermittent knee-thigh deep snow. Our shoes were like lakes by the end, and feet were pretty cold, but it was still really fun! We would definitely recommend dressing for snow.

Hiked the loop counter-clockwise, taking the road (currently closed to vehicular traffic) up to the tank and then back down through the woods on the Bakers Tank trail. This is definitely the least strenuous route, as the elevation change on the road is far more gradual than the trail's switchbacks. If you go counterclockwise you'll only encounter steep grade on your way down. There are still patches of knee-deep snow, so be prepared to get wet. We completed it in just under four hours with tennis shoes, jeans, and light packs, but obviously boots and more sophisticated gear would've made things easier.

Hiked up the clear wide open and dry Boreas Pass. Stopped for lunch under Baker's Tank as shelter from the sprinkles. Then headed back on the intermittent snow covered Baker's Tank. All of our shoes were wet, the kids were tired and cold, but it was a great hike. Probably better with snowshoes and or poles but we did it without and loved it.

This was our first hike out here so we took Boreas Pass Road up then the trail back down to the parking area. We had friends with us who were not accustomed to the altitude and the road up was perfect. Great views of Breckenridge, Quandry Peak, and the Ten Mile Range. We are used to snowshoeing up in the winter and hiking in September when the road is open was a bit annoying with all the traffic. But the trail down was wonderful. Nice hike overall.

great for families with all ability ranges. Particularly nice in fall for the color changes.

Beautiful trail, a perfect way to get away from the heat of summer since the first part of the trail is in the forest and cooled by the shade of the trees. You can do this trail as a loop or an out and back. The first part of the trail is in the woods, gives way to a few overlooks of the surrounding mountains towards the end. The second part of the trail is on Boreas Pass road, a gravel/sand road that leads back to the trail head. Decided to do the entire loop. While walking on the gravel road wasn’t ideal, the views down were beautiful. A few things of note: my husband and I were 1 of 3 hiking groups we saw on the entire loop. We mostly came across bikers on the gravel road on our way down, 3 bikers while in the forest part of the trail. Lots of cars coming up the gravel road too on our way down. This didn’t take away from the hike though, still nice and cool with beautiful views, and everyone is so nice. When we arrived at 8am on a Saturday we were the only car in the lot. By the time we finished the lot was full. Mostly bikers from what I could tell. If you like some peace and quiet while in the forest, I’d say this is the hike for you. Get there early and you won’t run into too many bikers on the forest path. As for the level of difficulty, there was a pretty consistent incline in the forest, with a few level spots. But not too hard or too easy. I would definitely do this again.

Not a loop as advertised - out and back unless you want to walk the road. Otherwise pretty decent hike.

Relatively easy hike with lots of forest views until you get back out on to Boreas Pass Road. At that point you’re on gravel with awesome views into the mountains to the west.
