This is a awesome road to drive for any standard car as 4 wheeled drive is not required. The road is an old rail bed and takes long slow incline up over the pass and it is really beautiful for Aspen viewing. Give yourself a...More

We try to drive up Boreas pass a few times/year. It is stunning in the fall. This year, the changing aspens were spectacular. There are 2-3 areas where you feel like you are driving through a tunnel of aspens. In the summer, the wild flowers...More

Always a gorgeous drive- but last week was the best. If you can- make the drive all the way over to Como. So different that heading to pass from Breck. No need right now for 4 wheel drive.

Went 9/15/17 - some aspen are still green, some have turned yellow, and more than in previous years are brilliant orange. Great views, photo ops, etc. It is a dirt road, and while I agree you don't need 4WD/AWD, I am glad I didn't have...More
