Spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains and the Continent Divide, and just a short drive from the town of Breckenridge.

Boreas pass is a high mountain pass in the Rocky Mountains that sits on the Continental Divide at 11,481'. Forest Service Road 33 goes over the pass and has numerous campsites all along its length, with several near the summit that feature breathtaking views of the Tenmile Range and the Breckenridge Valley.

To get there from the town of Breckenridge, go south out of town on Main Street and take a left on Boreas Pass Road and follow it all the way to the summit.

From the towns of Fairplay and Jefferson, take Highway 285 north and south, respectively, and go left and right, respectively, onto Boreas Pass road towards Como, and then right onto Boreas Pass Road in town.

In winter the road is impassable but is often used by cross-country skiers. Mileage listed is for the distance from Breckenridge to the summit.

Note that during monsoon season lightening strikes are always a concern.
