Fun and exciting in any vehicle, this drive is a "must do" if you're on a motorcycle. We arrived at Echo Lake lodge at 11:30 and had a great lunch while we waited for the Mt Evans road to reopen following a bicycle race and a bad storm at the top. The road was reopened at 2:00 and we travelled... More

The drive is narrow and exciting, the views were indescribable. Denver looked like a Lego city in the distance and Longs Peak was quite dramatic. The visitors center was small but packed full of great displays!

All these reviews are accurate. Mt Evans is worth the drive. The road is not as scary as some reviews make it out to be, but caution is required. Some spots have tight turns and no visual for oncoming traffic, so please keep to your side of the road. More importantly, please be mindful of the cyclists! The hike up... More

Amazing road trip to the top of the mountain. If weather permits, it's a must visit if you are roaming nearby.

Our family drove the scenic road to the top. What a breathtaking drive. Words can't explain the beautiful sights. We stopped along the way to enjoy the different stops and views of nature. Everyone must visit this place before they die.

This is a great attraction. I've hiked to the top, I've biked to the top and yes, I've driven to the top. By far, the first to modes of transit are the most rewarding. After Labor Day is best...

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL setting!! The restaurant was wonderful and sits up on an incline. Very cool in the summer; need a jacket for sure! So many hummingbirds buzzing around the level of humming was very loud! I was not able to go to the top of the Mount as I am a senior citizen but those who did were amazed by... More

After reading all the positive reviews, I was excited to drive up the highest road in North America. We passed the ranger station and paid $10 to continue and almost immediately, we were on the side of a cliff with a HUGE drop off. There are no guard rails and there is no shoulder on this road. It was so... More

You can go from 80 degrees in Denver to 40 degrees at the top of Mount Evans. It has great vistas and worth the trip!

We were in Denver for a long weekend and a show at Red Rocks and had a list of other things to see and do. This was one of them and a great choice. A beautiful ride up through the mountains with continuos awesome views. If you don't like heights you might find this a bit stressful on the way... More
