We drove to the top of Mt. Evans in early July and were lucky enough that the whole road was open. The road is very curvy and scary at times, but worth it. Watch out for the people bicycling up to the top and give yourself plenty of time enjoy the drive. Be on the look out for Mountain Goats!

This trip is similar to driving pikes peak, but probably less traffic and narrower roads. We saw so much wildlife it was incredible. Mountain Goats, Mountain Sheep, deer. Really fantastic. I think this is the highest paved road in the US. Also, you can really feel the altitude.

It is an easy drive to the top and the view is impressive. While it was a number of years ago when we lived in Denver, this was one of the top places we took visitors. All were impressed.

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.
