: An interesting backcountry shortcut from town of Jefferson on Highway 285 to Breckenridge. The climb to the pass on the south side... more » is an easy graded road. As you drop down the north side of the pass on Forest Road 355, it gets steeper and rougher, but there are no major obstacles. You’ll eventually run into Tiger Road, which becomes paved and passes through an upscale residential area including Breckenridge Golf Course. A road that heads east from the pass goes to high point at top of Glacier Peak. Running north along the west side of Glacier Peak is a narrow shelf road that eventually leads to a difficult descent down an obstacle called “Number 10 Hill.” Located in White River National Forest. For current conditions call Dillon Ranger District (970) 468-5400
Moderate. Rating is based on a 2-mile stretch on the north side of the pass. OK for stock SUVs with low range unless snow covered. The trail may be impassable in the spring because of one wet area on the upper north side.
