Reading the reviews before I go , I was not sure about how safe to drive. It s very safe, mountain road is very well maintain, wide road, superb views, the echo lake deserves a stop and a walk. The top was closed because of the snow( in May). A must go

A touristy destination for a few wandering bikers in search of America. We were not disappointed in any way. The views from the top and at any number of stops on the way up and down were worth the time. Not into city life much so this was right up my alley.

This is a must do location for showing off Colorado. Great vistas, interesting ecology and wildlife. Stop at the Mt. Goliath area to check out wildflowers and Bristle cone pine trees. There is a minimal charge to drive the road, and it is narrow and winding with no guard rails. There are minimal pull outs towards the top and limited... More

The drive was amazing (take your time). The View once you get to the top is breath taking. Well worth the 1hr 40 min drive from Denver. Also there is a little survivor/eatery on your way up to Mt. Evans before the ranger station. I would recommend stopping in on your way down. check out the shop and grab something... More

The highest paved road in the Continental US, offers wonderful views, changing terrain and very friendly (aggressive even) mountian goats most days. Usually open Memorial Day through Labor Day, stop in Idaho Springs for mountain pizza at Beau Jo's for a perfect day--no matter the weather.

This is North America's highest paved road and it is well worth the time to drive it. Great chance of seeing big horn sheep and goats. Highly recommended

Mt. Evans makes a nice 3-4 hour roundtrip drive to a top of a 14er, perfect place to take grandparents or people that don't like to hike but want to see a top of a mountain. Can be a traffic jam during summer, come early or late if planning the drive in June through August.

A sanctuary for the beloved and ancient bristle cone pine, Mt. Goliath offers a myriad of wildflowers, hikes and breathtaking views of the Front Range of Denver as well as the stunning Continental Divide. It has its own nature center/visitors building to begin your hike around. Bring water, sunscreen, hat, gloves and outerwear even in summer!

Mt. Evans is one of Colorado's highest peaks at 14,240 feet above sea level. The great thing is you can drive nearly to the top and then take a short walk and be at the summit! great for folks coming from lower elevations and a fantastic view!!!
