We visited during the summer when the road had just opened all the way to the top. Even though it was 98 degrees in Denver that day it was cold enough to snow up top! Remember your sun screen and warm jacket.

The drive is not for those who are scared of heights.. When you get to the top there's mountain goats that live up there... We love it here! ! !

This is one of the best drives I have ever been on! There are plenty of scenic views and many places to stop. There is a nice souvenir shop and small restaurant/ bar at the top of the mountain that overlooks the lake. It is so stunning from the top!

Very beautiful drive all the way up! It took a bit longer then I expected but I was going sow and enjoying the views. I definitely noticed the thinner air!

It was quite a climb up on narrow roads but it was well worth it with the views from up top and all the mountain goats and marmots we saw.

We stayed in Centennial (Denver Tech Center) and it was about a 45 minute drive on the highway, followed by a 20 minute drive on some local country roads. We took 25N to 70W. I'm afraid of heights and mountain driving, so a short while after we got off of 70 I made my brother drive. Good thing too, because... More

We drove to the top of Mt. Evans last weekend when we were in town for business. The scenery is breathtaking and we were pleased that the road to the top had been completed. The altitude did make us a bit lightheaded at the peak, but we simply headed back down after a few minutes. I would definitely recommend the... More

Great visit to a beautiful place, don't miss Mt. Evans, and don't be scared off by the drive to get there. Harrowing drive up the mountain, but the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful

My wife and I drove to the summit two years ago and enjoyed an afternoon exploring the summit. Just visited again with our daughter (21) and son (19). Enjoyed it even more the second time around. Once again, the narrow, winding roads generated much excitement and the views coming and going were spectacular. Views from the top were even better!... More

A very nice, but crowded peak because you are able to drive to the top of it. You can see a lake at the summit. On the way up, we saw some mountain goats as well. There are bathrooms at the summit which is nice. It costs 10 dollars to access Mt. Evans. Definitely recommend!
