Why climb a mountain when you can drive to the top. Once you've climbed a "14'er" my feeling is that you've done your due. The vie is essentially the same from all of them... read more

Gorgeous views... I swear you drive up the mountain forever. I did (embarrassingly) get altitude sickness... dizzy and almost passed out (I'm from NC!!!) There was one part that the clouds were moving fast and they passed through me... it's amazing how cold they are inside! Great memories. Is it time to go back??

We deccided to do a day trip to Mt. Evans. The drive there was awesome and very scenic since it had snowed the night before. Scenic vistas and incredible views were everywhere. The roads had some snow on it but altogether not bad. The road to Mt. Evans from the lake and lodge was closed because it is open only... More

Why climb a mountain when you can drive to the top. Once you've climbed a "14'er" my feeling is that you've done your due. The vie is essentially the same from all of them. After you can say that you have climbed one....then you can just drive to the top of Mt. Evans, and cheat the system of waking up... More

Mount Evans is just a short drive west from Denver and can easily be a full day of exploring for both families and solo travelers. I drove up the mountain in July, it was 95 degrees for a high in Denver the day I drove up and the temperature at the summit was 48 degrees at noon. Needless to say... More

Driving to the summit of Mount Evans is a bucket list event in Colorado. The view along this scenic route is stunning. Watch for mountain goats along the way. Make sure to take a jacket, even in summer, because there will be snow and ice at the summit. One of the most beautiful day trips in Colorado, especially for those... More

If you are coming to CO and want the experience of driving to the top of a "fourteener" then go to Mt. Evans. Stop at Summit Lake to visit the restaurant and gift shop. It is often much cooler at the top so you might want to make the stop on the way down and have a cup of coffee... More

We visited in the summer. Was a great drive up to the top of mount Evans, with some spectacular views, there is a frozen lake on the way, and a nice little restaurant at the bottom of the mountain.

Yes, I rated this as an excellent experience, but.... If you have any degree of acrophobia (and you know if you do) be prepared to have an attack. The road up to Mt. Evans, in my opinion, is much, much more terrifying than Trail Ridge Road. Mt. Evans has some switchbacks with shear 1,000s of feet drop off. The drive... More
