Boreas Mountain is a low 13er above Boreas Pass. At only 4 miles and 1700′ round trip, it would make for a very quick hike and a wonderfully easy morning. Tori and I made it to Boreas Pass at 8am after a scenic drive up the 2wd dirt road. I was surprised that there were only a few cars in the parking lot, though that didn’t last long. We hiked east past a number of historic buildings that once housed rail workers (Boreas Pass Road used to be a rail line). The buildings have been restored and are typically open to the public but they were closed due to Covid during our visit.
