Boreas Pass Climb to Top of Pass

10 to 20 mile ride, Easy, Out & Back, Paved Road & Dirt Road

Good To Know: This is a good early season road ride & beautiful Autumn Ride. Great novice ride if you like a good climb, so be ready. Expect vehicle traffic which can be heavy on the weekend. Be ready for weather.

Parking: From I-70, drive south through Breckenridge on Hwy 9. Turn left at the stoplight on the south end of town onto Boreas Pass Road. Also easy access from Main St. Breckenridge. Park at the far end of the parking lot of the Ice Rink. 2nd Parking option is at the Parking lot when the Dirt road begins. If the gat is closed it means the road is wet and snow. Avoid riding if gate is closed.

Description: Begin the ride with a gradual incline that quickly gains elevation. Your heart rate will increase as you power up the wide curves. It will be tough not to notice the views to the left of the ski resort and town. Keep your eye on the road as there will be vehicle traffic. At the top of curves, it levels out a bit with a slight incline to the transition to dirt road. This section is well maintained and gradual incline that takes you through beautiful groves of aspens and incredible views of Blue River & Continental Divide. At the top of the pass, you will find the restored Boreas Pass Section House. Turn around here for an estimated ride of 20 miles.
