A stop at Rocky Point along the Boreas Pass Road offers scenic views of the North Tarryall Creek drainage and surrounding mountains. Just past Halfway Gulch, a small parking on the west side of the road marks the point where the road leaves the historic grade of the Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad due to the cost of widening the grade to accomodate automobiles. Narrow gauge tracks have been reinstalled along this curve to provide a sense of what it was like during the railroad’s heyday. As you walk along the path that connects back with the road, look below to see the remnants of placer mines that once operated along the Tarryall Creeks. This site is only accessible by snowmobile or on foot when the U.S. Forest Service has closed the Boreas Pass Road winter gate by the Roberts Cabin.
