Trail Highlight: Black Powder Pass

Located at the top of Boreas Pass this is a trail with views for days. While not the best marked, this is a perfect trail for those seeking a little adventure. With wildflowers and tree stumps covering the hillsides, this is a stunning trail. We hiked this later in the night, but would recommend it at an afternoon hike to really take in all the surrounding beauty. If you follow the trail (there won’t be any signs) you will reach the saddle between Baldy and Boreas and enjoy fantastic views of the French Creek Valley.

To get there: From Main Street head towards Blue River on Highway 9 and take a left on Boreas Pass Road. Keep taking this road up, up and up! You will eventually reach the continental divide and see a parking lot on the left. Park there and walk toward the shed/barn on the left. You will see if sign for Black Powder Pass trail sign on the left.
