The road is closed at the Echo Lake Lodge to cars. Cyclists and... More

The road is beyond Echo Lake is closed (a/o Jul 28, 2015) until mid-August for emergency repairs. Since it's difficult to find information online about Mount Evans' status, you may call the shop at Echo Lake to get information if you need it.

We drove mount Evans Saturday July 25th. Many spots to pull over and take pictures. There are great spots along the way to catch a nice sunset as well. Hope to do it during the fall next year.

Although the road to Mount Evans is closed to vehicular traffic, it is a nice drive from Denver to Echo Lake and the Echo Lake Lodge at the entrance to the Mount Evan's byway. There is a flat trail around the lake that is good for children and any age adult. There is no swimming in the lake. There is... More

Went on my annual trip to mount Evans and found that the road was closed and was not due to be reopened till sometime in August due to Avalanches and road repair.

This is my only trip above the timberline, so for those who've travelled to many of these mountains, I can't say how it compares but for somebody who has never been this high up, it was fascinating, it was scary (switchbacks) and beyond incredibly beautiful! Unfortunately, the conservatory had just closed when we got up there... Be prepared to go... More

We drove up for a day on Mount Evans only to find the road closed until mid-August. We looked at the mountevans.com website before we left the house, and the only road closure alerts on there were for 2011 and 2012. While we were bummed that we couldn't make the drive, we enjoyed a beautiful day at Echo Lake and... More

This was a great trip. The drive up the mountain was not stressful. The lake was fantastic. The views, walking paths all wonderful Unfortunately, the road to the summit was closed for repairs.

We made the initial long drive up through the mountain to get to the entrance to Mt. Evans, only to find the gates closed for road repair till mid-August 2015. So traveler beware! Make sure it is open before you trek all the way up the mountain with no views to entertain you.

This is an occasional cycling climb, a real challenge and great views. (Highest paved road in the continental US.)
