The views are amazing, it is breathtaking and well worth the time to take this trip. The tour of Coors Brewery is fun, but get there early.

Beautiful scenic drive! Be sure to have your gas tank full. Very few opportunities for fuel. There are pull offs for pictures.

Very beautiful and scenic drive. As you get off the exit from Interstate 70, go past and down the rest area and look for the buffalo.

The road has plenty of hairpin curves, requiring a speed limit of 15 mph in most spots. There are some great views, and access to trails.
