Description

From the Boreas Pass winter trailhead, go south past the gate and look for a singletrack on the west side of the road. The trail has been recently (2014) realigned and features numerous flowy switchbacks through a beautiful aspen grove.

The trail terminates at a gravel driveway on the lower section of Boreas Pass Road (paved). Take a right on the driveway back to Boreas Pass Road and climb back to the trailhead. Utilize Illinois Gulch Road to short-cut the climb back to the trailhead.

Trees are changing and it's beautiful. You'll have to share the trail with tons of hikers. Do this trail early or mid week.

My first time here. Insanely gorgeous and just enough challenge to make me feel uncomfortable and forced me to work on my skills.
