Gorgeous splendor!

Absolutely stunning views! There is some construction on the road, but it is worth the inconvenience.

If you have ANY trouble breathing at 8,000 feet, I would suggest you not go to the top which is 14,000 feet. Your lungs can feel it. HOWEVER -- if you are in decent shape and willing to drive to the top of North America on a winding two lane road, it is really amazing. We went last year and... More

I think there is only one other place in Colorado that you can drive to on a maintained road and be way, way above timberline. Drink lots of fluids - it will help prevent headaches from the altitude.

We had 7 teens and they were willing to go on a car ride so we went to drive. Views were beautiful. Road to top is closed due to prior damage. Echo lake Lodge is a gem with great employees. Go the views are awesome.

It was an awesome drive to Mt Evans. Lots of little places to stop on the side of the road to take in the views. Last weekend, you could not drive all the way to the top, you couldn't get past Echo Lake Park. I would suggest this to anyone.

Only a two hour trip (one way) from Denver and you can be on top of the world. Visit one of the most scenic spots around. The road has lots of twists and turns but take it slow and you will be just find. Watch for mountain goats along the side of the road. Prepare for possible snow at the... More

Last year on vacation in Colorado we got to drive up Mt. Evans on a clear day. the views were amazing and we encounter a lot of wildlife. Two things to mention: 1. You will need to be ready for much cooler temperatures at the higher elevations and 2. Drink plenty of water and be careful you know the signs... More

I drove a Porsche convertible almost to the top. What a blast! Scenic and in many many ways more fun to drive up than Pike's Peak.

How can it be bad? It's a 14er, close to Denver with easy access. Great day trip for tourists with time to visit several points of interest along the way. The weather can be challenging even with the possibility of road closures during the winter.

Wow! Another mountain above 14000ft in Colorado. We drove all the way up to the top and then walked our way up to the summit. One of my kids did not do well with the altitude. On our way up we saw some mountain goats alone the road. It took us some time to drive to the top and when... More
