The pass, which sits at an elevation of 3,499 m (11,481 ft), served as an early route for thousands of prospectors during the Colorado Gold Rush, and served as a railway bed from the late 1800s until 1937.

    Went to seethe fall colors but were disappointed as it had rained and snowed the previous week and we got to see only 40% of what would have been simply gorgeous. It's worth a trip in the fall in spit...  more »

    I'm always stunned by the incedible beauty of the Rockies. Being from the Eastern US, we have nothing that quite compares. This pass is one of the most beautiful, located right in the Breck area.  more »

Where to stay in Breckenridge

Many cabins and lodges take inspiration from the mountains in their design at Breckenridge. If you're there to ski, find a hotel or inn near the slopes that offers ski in/ski out options, or choose lodging along the free shuttle route so you don't have to worry about parking. If you're traveling with a family and are planning to stay a week or so, consider booking a condo or private home with plenty of space to spread out. You'll find small and exclusive bed and breakfasts in the center of town, while sprawling resorts are located away from the main street on the forested mountainside.
