Trail Overview
Georgia Pass
This short mountain pass offers camping and an option to make it longer and more challenging by returning across Glacier Peak. To return to Denver, you'll go southeast from the pass on gravel roads to Jefferson.
History
Georgia Pass was the most popular way to reach Breckenridge from the south in the early 1860s. Thousands of eager miners brought their wagons over the pass and down through the Swan River Valley. Eventually Boreas Pass and Hoosier Pass became the more popular routes, and Georgia Pass was abandoned. Dredge mining continues on the west end of Tiger Road, but much of the larger dredged area has now been reclaimed.
Getting There
From Breckenridge: From Hwy. 9 about 3 miles north of Breckenridge, take Tiger Road east past Breckenridge Golf Course. Paved road changes to dirt after residential section. Watch for staging area on right after about 4.8 miles. From Jefferson (to drive trail in reverse direction): Head north on Michigan Creek Road, C.R. 35. It loops around and connects to C.R. 54. Continue north on C.R. 54 about 7 miles to Georgia Pass.
