The leaves are changing and we have already had a dusting of snow on the peaks. That could only mean one thing – Breckenridge Oktoberfest is here!
Come join us for the largest street party in the Rocky Mountains this weekend (Sept. 7th – 9th). This year’s Oktoberfest, as it always does, will feature more than three-dozen genuine German cuisine and brew vendors, German-themed games including Hammerschlagan, Bavarian lederhosen, Oompah and polka dancing. For more information, visit GoBreck.
Can’t make it up for Oktoberfest? No worries – there is still plenty to do and see in Breckenridge this fall! The leaves are changing a little earlier this year making sightseeing and hiking spectacular. Also, The Breckenridge Golf Club does not close until October 7th.
A Few of Our Favorite Spots to View Fall Colors
The leaves are changing early this year – don’t miss out!
Boreas Pass Road:
This historic route starts at the south end of Breckenridge. Turn left onto Boreas Pass Road and drive about 4 miles – from there, you can take in amazing vistas of Breckenridge and the surrounding peaks. You will also be engulfed in some of the most beautiful aspen groves in the state.
Hoosier Pass/Mt. Quandary:
Drive south of Breckenridge on Hwy 9 through Blue River. From there, it will be hard to miss the huge aspen covered hillsides and 14,000 ft peaks.
If you are lucky, there will be a dusting of snow high to create an amazing backdrop for the fall foliage. There are also numerous trailheads in the area where you can take a quick hike for better vantage points.
