Drive Colorado State Highway 285 to the small town of Como, between Jefferson and Fairplay. Look for a sign indicating Boreas Pass Road. Drive the road through Como (County Rd 50) and continue till you come to the turn off for Boreas Pass road, (about 1 1/2 miles) Depending on snow conditions you may be able to drive a short distance up the road to the winter gate and park there. If not, park on the roadside near the turn-off.

To reach the Gold Dust Trailhead, follow the Boreas Road directions above. Drive past the turn-off for Boreas pass and continue on County Road 50 for 1.7 miles through a residential area. Look for a trail register mounted on a metal post on the right (E) side of the road. For parking the road may be plowed wider at the trailhead, but don't count on it. Park as far off the road as possible.

Four wheel drive is recommended for both of these trailheads.


This book goes great with our maps, highly recommended for any hut skier.
