Baldy Road (520) Trailhead
Added by BillMiddlebrook

Location:  Front Range
Road Type:  Paved Road 0   (0=Paved, 6=Very Difficult 4WD)
The Baldy (520) road is paved and the dirt road is rough 2WD for a mile and then easy 4WD.
Directions:  Drive to the south end of Breckenridge and turn east onto Boreas Pass road. Drive 2.0 miles up Boreas Pass Road and turn left on Baldy Road (520). Come to the end of the paved 520 road at 3.3 miles. Emmet Lode (536) turns left. This is the main/winter trailhead and a limited number of cars can park here. In summer, it’s possible to park higher by driving up the dirt road that continues straight from the parking area. After 0.7 mile up this road, there is a small parking area on the right before the road requires 4WD.
Winter Access:  The dirt road is closed in winter. Some parking is available at the end of the 520 (paved) road, but do not block the bus stop on the right.

2013-09-18 Was able to make it to the parking area past the winter trailhead (.7 miles past it). A couple of large ruts but i did it in an rx300 so anything with decent clearance should be fine. Saw a stock tacoma that drove to the towers at the start of the north ridge SolarAlex
