Best Sunset Spots in Summit County

Have you ever seen the “Colorful Colorado’ fiery sunsets behind the iconic peaks of the Ten Mile Range? We may be biased but Breckenridge sunsets are ones you will not want to miss. What a perfect way to end the perfect day, capturing the sunset as it dips behind the mountain skyline. We put together our favorite sunset viewing spots below!

Elev8 Lounge

Looking to have a relaxing night while taking in the sunset from the Grand Colorado on Peak 8? Look no further, Elev8 Lounge has the perfect outdoor patio that overlooks Peak 8, Baldy Mountain and the Continental Divide. There are grills on the patio, grab a drink, grill some dinner and take in the beautiful sky as it lights up!

Boreas Pass

Boreas Pass sunset spot is one of the local’s favorites. Boreas Pass is a drivable road that will eventually take you into Como, Colorado if followed all the way. The pass gives you a different perspective of Breckenridge and removes you from the resort views. Pack some snacks and the family and enjoy a beautifully colored sunset from the mountain roadside.

Sapphire Point

Just outside Breckenridge on Swan Mountain, Sapphire Point is a beautiful place to stop and take in the view of Lake Dillon and Breckenridge ten mile range. If you time the sunset just right, you will be able to see the mountain reflection on Lake Dillon. Spectacular!

Riverwalk Center Lawn

This is the perfect place to catch a Breckenridge sunset, right in the middle of downtown Breckenridge. Complete with the river, grassy area to sit and a playground to keep the kids entertained. Grab some food from one of the many local restaurants or have a picnic on the lawn and enjoy the sunset filling the sky while you are filling your tummy!
