Hello! Trying to decide if renting a minivan will get us up the road to this pass? Do we need to have 4wd? It's pricier to rent...
Hi, I would really appreciate some input. My girlfriend and I are renting a pickup in Denver and driving to Steamboat in a few weeks (late Feb) and I've never seen Breckenridge so we're going to and have a beer and lunch somewhere. Is this Boreas Pass a road we could drive up to catch a view or is it just for hikers?
Is it worth even doing at all? We would be into a quick 1 hour hike if it gets us some great views, but would just as soon drive up there.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated. p.s. I have 30 years experience driving in snow if that matters
I'm planning a trip with my family to see the aspens when they at the height of their gold color. How close do you think we are to that?
I will be visiting the last week of June. Should the road be opened by then? I was planning on being in Breckenridge on the 26th.
How long should one allow for this drive? If we do the McCullough Gulch Hike, would you recommend hiking in this area as well?
