Best place near Denver to get a 360 view for those who are unable to tackle a huge climb. Kids can scramble, tourists can pant and make it to the top, where they just might find a group of foreign mountaineers that came up the hard way. Not on the curvy narrow road.

I lived here in Colorado all my life 58 years and when I ride my motorcycle or drive a car to the top the view is the best.

I drive up here all the time. For the out of town people you guys need to take your time to get up and back down. The roads are very narrow with major drop off to nowhere. It's beautiful and we always park and hike to the top! Peaceful up there! Plenty of MT Goats up there as well.. Don't... More

When snow does not prevent access this Is a beautiful drive to top. We were able to see wildlife along the drive and the view is gorgeous in many locations along the drive.

OK, if you have height phobias(acrophobia), this may not be the best trip? I have acrophobia. My son-in-law(the one who loves to torture me) was the driver. I knew I couldn't drive with my acrophobia so I let him drive. His constant motioning to interesting sites along the way and driving close to the side of the road was pure... More

The view from Mt Evans is spectacular and being able to drive within a few hundred feet of the top makes it easy to go to the top of a 14er.

I've been up Mount Evans multiple times by car and by foot. Here are some tips for each: Hiking: If you're looking to bag a 14er, this one would be a great place to start! You can drive half way up and park at Summit Lake and begin your hike there. Depending on the route you choose, you can hike... More

Mt Evans allows you a great view of the Rocky Mountains. On your way up the mountain you can see some of the oldest trees in the United States as well as Fall Sheep some people call them Mountain Goats. Stop by Echo Lake and enjoy the view. There once was a Army Training Center there for the 10th Mountain... More
