A wonderful drive from either Evergreen or Idaho Springs. So beautiful and full of life. Most of the road has been re done and is very nice. The lake is always gorgeous in winter or summer and the little gift shop is a fun place to get your souvineers.

The Lake at Echo Mountain Park is crystal clear and absolutely gorgeous just the drive up here is worth it. This is a must for those visiting the Denver area.

A good waypoint and stop on the way up Mount Evans. You have to walk through the gift shop to get to the restaurant. Our group's selections included hamburgers, what can you do to a hamburger?

Great place to stop on your way up Mt. Evans! We stopped here for a picnic lunch before driving up to the summit, and took a walk on a nice trail around the lake and up to the Echo Lake Lodge restaurant and souvenir shop. The views are spectacular.

We drove up late in the day and the clouds were all around so no views at all... it was still fun and cold!!! We got some local advice to go around 8am for the best views!
