Boreas Pass Road is an old rail bed for one of the first narrow gauge railroads to traverse the continental divide. In its day this was an important commercial route. The destination, Baker’s Tank, is a steam engine watering tank that has been restored by Summit County. Such a history means the road gains elevation very gradually. Boreas Pass Road does go all the way over Boreas Pass to the town of Como.The views form here of the Ten Mile Range are not to be missed.

Directions: From I-70 take Exit 203, Frisco/Breckenridge, and travel south on HWY 9 through Frisco toward Breckenridge. At the southern town limits of Breckenridge turn left onto Boreas Pass Road (County Road 10). Follow Boreas Pass Road approximately 3.5 miles to the Bakers Tank Trailhead parking lot.
