Really love it above tree line. Can't beat the reduced crowds compared to Pikes Peak... I always love going up here!

Despite Mount Evans Road being completely closed, my husband and I were still able to see so many great views on Trail 52/Chicago Lakes Trail. I think it took us about 3 hours to do the entire trail in the snow. The 1st 3 miles are pretty easy to get through and takes you to a great view of Mount... More

Traveled here march 2013. Probably the top experience of my life, I think the challenge was the lack of rails and real danger. It was totally legit and will never forget this experience.

The most amazing view from the top. There is a large Lake before getting to the top with awesome views. It is a long drive up but IT IS WORTH IT... I saw a bunch of the white Mountain Goats, stopped and took photos... GREAT

The drive to the top of Mt. Evans (obviously in the non-snowy time of year) is an exhilarating experience. The view from there is just awesome!

We didn't get to see the last 5 miles because they had closed it. But even as far as we did go it was beautiful. We saw Big horn Sheep. Breathe taking views.

A drive up to the top of Mount Evans is one of the top things to do if you come to Denver. Or if you live in Denver! Many people who live in the metro area think that Mt. Evans is "too far away." Mt. Evans is the closest "fourteener" to Denver and is an easy and beautiful drive. We... More

Mount Evans is a great way to experience the Rocky Mountains of you have an afternoon to kill while staying in Denver. From Denver expect to drive a couple hours to get there although the drive is part of the experience so don't get too bummed about that. You'll sometimes see mountain goats and small little "whistle pigs" also known... More

I've visited the Colorado area several times and wondered why I had never heard of Mount Evans before. Thank you Trip Advisor for the recommendation! It was a bit of a drive from where we were staying in Denver and there is some road construction right now which complicates the drive just a bit, but it was worth every single... More
