Nice easy road. Dry conditions- at present time the road is clear W/o obstacles, pretty much any normal car could do it (unless you have low profile tires then wouldn't recommend it). Great views and a couple of historic sites. Definitely recommend for beginner 4x4ers or those just looking for a leisurely trail.

I'm only giving this three stars because I didn't get to experience the 4X4 road due to it being closed today. Unfortunately it's hard to find anywhere online to find out about its current status. The ranger station is closed on the weekend in Breck. Call M-F to find out road conditions and save yourself a trip if that's your intent. Trail open to hiking and biking. I will be back. I didn't hike.

Went snowshoeing. The views are spectacular on a sunny day. Path is pretty well worn with cross country skis and hikers so snow shoes not necessary. Would love to come back in summer or fall.

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.

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.
