History of Woodmoor in Breckenridge
Woodmoor homes sit on roads named for historic mining claims that were once the geographic features of this area. Claims like North Fuller Placer, Emmett’s Lode and others were staked as long strips of land that followed the creeks on Baldy Mountain. Burro or wagon roads traversed these claims and are the foundation of the current streets in Woodmoor. All roads funnel back onto Baldy Mountain Road and easily take residents of Woodmoor to the jeep roads or trails that climb further up the mountain.
The popular Baldy Mountain Trail is open to cross-country skiers, bikers and hikers, but was once the main route to the Iowa Mill, one of the last-to-be-abandoned, ore-crushing mills in the county. This historic site is a few miles up the trail, near treeline. Above that are the sparsely vegetated flanks of Baldy Mountain crossed by a few switchbacks used by hikers and backcountry skiers to the summit and a herd of mountain goats.

The Geography of Woodmoor
The Woodmoor subdivision was platted in the 1970s and covers a large area on a long, southwestern face of Baldy Mountain. Portions of the original subdivision were developed as separate small subdivisions of condos or townhomes. What remains, officially as Woodmoor are custom-built homes, triplexes and duplexes in the Upper section, and Baldy Mountain Townhomes, a distinct lower section. A variety of open land and trees fills in the spaces between homes and the neighborhood feels homey and diverse.
Woodmoor is bisected by Boreas Pass Road, built for a narrow-gauge railway line which follows a gentle but circuitous route into Breckenridge. As Boreas Pass Road crosses the long Woodmoor hillside, it divides the subdivision into the two parts.
From the farthest point of Upper Woodmoor, downtown is 4.5 miles (all downhill) along Baldy and Boreas Pass roads. Upper Woodmoor is only 2.5 miles east of town.
This lower portion consists of close to 80 entry-level townhomes built in the early 1970s, in clusters named for Bunker Hill Lode, Silver Queen, Lucky and other mines formerly worked in the area. These townhomes are staggered along Illinois Gulch which is served by the free countywide bus system. This mile-long gulch is only 1.5 to 2.5 miles from downtown Breckenridge. Trails connect it to the forest and to town.
