The ultimate opportunity to climb to the top of one of Colorado's most beautiful 14-er's driving the majority of the way. (Hiking to the summit is one tough one done all on foot!) The view from the summit is incredible, the road also offers some spectacular views of surrounding mountains. It's Colorado at it's finest!!

September 5, 2016 - the last day the road to the top was open for the season. I woke up with an adventurous spirit and the dog and I set out for the top of Mount Evans. It was a gorgeous Colorado day with bright sun and blue sky. The views from the top are stunning and from the parking... More

Love riding my motorcycle around Mount Evans every summer. They have a fun gift shop and snack shack at the top.

It's a mountain. Growing up in the area you do see a lot of these. Even still when I go back to visit this is usually on my list. And when the extended family is in town you always take them to these places. Can't go wrong with this drive.

We really enjoyed this experience. Brought my 5 and 9 year old and our teenage exchange student. Not a difficult hike from the parking area (very crowded) but at a summit of over 14,000 feet I was definitely out of breath.

I great drive to a 14'er. Great views in all directions. Different climates and topography from alpine to tundra. Wildlife viewing from marmots to Mountain Goats next to your car!

Awesome view of a fourteener with short climb to the very top. Beautiful drive with lots of wildlife. Don't forget to stop at the nature center near some ancient bristle-cone trees nearby.

We've been here in the summer and the winter. We've done a few hikes around Echo Lake and up into the hills. Not too difficult to manage the elevation. Truly spectacular views from the top.
