Mount Evans is one of the places that every visitor to Colorado should go see. The road is not for anyone afraid of heights since there are no guard rails. It is only open during the summer months, so, check to see if the road is open before heading out.

My husband and I climbed Mt. Evans earlier this summer in our effort to climb as many 14ers as we can. Billed as an easier 14er, this peak (#13 for us) was more difficult than we had been led to believe. Always be prepared for a climb to be more difficult than you anticipate. Also, there is a road to... More

Make sure to wear warm clothes and shoes that grip, because you will be right on the edge of the mountain when you step out of your car to enjoy the views! There are several places to pull over and look out at the mountains, but they are right at the edge of the road so if you are afraid... More

Take your travels to new heights on the highest paved road in the U.S! Unusual to be level with the clouds before you pass through them! Saw what I can only decribe as a cloud fall as the clouds drop off the peaks like a waterfall would. I don't normally exerience altitude sickness but I was affected here. Drink plenty... More

We weren't able to go all the way up the mountain because it had snowed but we were able to see so many beautiful sites along the way. Our family took us on a loop and through a small town which was amazing. We saw a ton of wildlife throughout the trip, it is worth noting that the animals do... More

Worth the time to drive up the scenic road to the top and definitely worth making the last climb up to the peak. Beautiful views of a really remarkable part of the country to see. This was our second time up a 14,000 foot elevation but Mt. Evans was a lot easier than hiking up the first one we did.

Go through several ecological zones as you travel to the top of Mount Evans. Many places to stop along the way. Great views, lakes, birds, Marmots, Mountain Goats, Bighorn Sheep. Park at top for short but breathtaking trek to the top of the mountain.

An easy way to experience the best of Colorado. Fantastic views, if you are lucky wildlife (i.e. big horn sheep and mountain goats). Alpine lakes and tundra. Unspoiled. The best thing is that it is an hour from Denver.

Have now climbed Mt Evans 7 times by 5 different routes. Twice from Guanella pass - via the traverse from Bierstadt, and once on a jaunt over Grey Wolf and Mt Spaulding. The other 5 were all from Summit lake via 4 different north face snow routes - my favorite Father's Day climb. I've hob-bobbed with Mt goats on the... More

Nature, nice view, excellent road. Mt. Evans was one of the best rides in US. For my surprise, was snowing on the top. Not to be missed.
