Route Description

Trees in the Boreas Pass area were cut long ago for railroad and mining operations. Frequent strong winds can make for white-out conditions and low wind-chill temperatures. Be sure to carry a map and compass with you to aid in navigation, especially during times of adverse weather.

This route also follows the old railroad grade, approximately 7 miles from the trailhead parking area. A gentle grade, open meadows, and lovely views highlight this route.

Locations of Observed or Reported Avalanche Activity: No avalanche activity has been reported along this suggested route.
