Fall in Colorado: Guide to Fall Colors in Breckenridge, CO

The Fall foliage is in its full peak season right now in Breckenridge, CO and the surrounding high country areas. The shimmering golden yellows of the Aspen trees against the brilliant bluebird skies are absolutely spectacular. Now is the time to go color touring in the high country and here are a few suggestions we have for Breckenridge and Summit County.

Book your Fall foliage stay online now and you can save up to 33%!

Fall Color Drives

Boreas Pass to Hoosier Pass:
For some of the best viewing of the peak fall foliage first drive Boreas Pass located on the south side of Breckenridge. This historic road was originally designed for the Pacific Railroad as the silver boom in Leadville necessitated this high railroad pass over the Rocky Mountains. At the top of the pass you can see the few remainders of the Boreas Railroad station.

If you continue to the other side of the pass you can loop around through the town of Fairplay, Colorado and return to Breckenridge by Hoosier Pass. This makes one big loop of high altitude fall colors and spectacular views.

Longer route to Kenosha Pass- If time allows when you come down off of Boreas Pass you will be in Como, CO. From here you can take CO HWY 285 on a twenty minute drive that will take you to the top of Kenosha Pass where the colors are spectacular this year! On your way down stop for lunch or dinner at the historic Como Depot. This restored train depot is a blast from the past that offers delicious cuisine with great prices. Mention you are with ResortQuest and get a dining deal!

After an incredible day in the mountains return to Breckenridge to view the amazing golden yellow backdrop surrounding Breckenridge. When you stay with ResortQuest Breckenridge you can save up to 33% for a 3+ night stay. If you can’t stay 3 nights we will give you 25% off your 2 night stay! Don’t miss fall in the high country! Book your stay now.

The Breckenridge Wine Festival which took place on Saturday Sept. 4th was a huge success!

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting! With over 40 different wines from all over the world there was definitely something new to be tasted and loved.

The dancing crowd was loving the amazing music and the food was perfect match with all that wine.

Simultaneously happening, the Summit Foundations annual rubber duck race was taking place down the creek! Thousands of yellow ducks making their maiden voyage in the hopes of winning their owner a first place prize was quite a sight! And the kids had a blast with the swarms of yellow rubber duckies floating the river!

Music was provided by the Kevin Danzig, Trading Fours, The Vindicators Band, and Dru Carter! See bios of bands! And see video below of Dru Carter!
