One of the truly most beautiful places in Colorado. Close to my sister's home so we go there every year and never get tired of it. Love seeing the wild mountain goats and little ones, beautiful lake with mountains reflecting in it. Can be in 80's at beginning level and snow flurries at top. At park entrance there is a... More

Was one of the best trips I have ever taken in colorado, Beautiful can see for ever, And not so commercialized as Pikes Peak. Animals up there are very curious!

The drive to the summit of Mt. Evans is a good way to experience the Rockies. The actual drive is long and hazardous, and it takes and entire day to complete the trip. Incredible views and scenery all along the route, take your time and enjoy it.

The drive up Mount Evans is delightful. The road closes in winter so check ahead to see that it is open. Thawing sometimes doesn't occur until June.

We went after the last 5 miles was closed for the season and got an unexpected discount.,The summit lake area was still nice to walk around. We saw marmots and LOTS of pikas in the rocks along the trail up the mountain. No mountain goats though which was a little disappointing. The trip up is a little scary, but breathtaking.... More

It is quite a treat to be able to drive all the way up to the summit. It is also very easy to get to.

Nice view. You need to do this in the warmer parts of the year. Went over Thanksgiving Break and it was closed. We did drive up as far as we could be not sure how far from the top we were able to get due to the heavy snow.

There aren't many places where you can see mountain goats browsing in their natural habitat. There aren't many places in the lower 48 where you can have snowball fights in July. And the long drops will surely scare the besnickers out of your kids. Beautiful drive and beautiful place

The ride to the top of Mount Evans is a great motorcycle ride, but not for the timid riders! This is true of the car and suv drivers as well. The road is pretty narrow and the folks driving the dual wheeled pickups will force their way past you! It's pretty spooky to watch. The view from the top is... More
