Excellent views, have traveled this in the Fall, great color.

One of the most scenic routes close to the front range (Denver, etc), from Estes park to Central City.

Beautiful Drive but way to crowed. No place to park and picnic to enjoy the park. Amazing views and would recommend this drive but only to pass through.

I rode this scenic byway on my Can Am in the early fall of 2014 and it was almost a religious experience. You simply can't put into words the breath taking beauty. There are plenty of places to stop, see the views and take pictures. It isn't a terrible long ride, so you will have plenty of time to stop... More

Best way to return home from Estes Park to Denver. So pretty! There was hardly any traffic because we bypassed it all by not taking I-25 or I-36 back home. We stopped in a cute town, Nederland for lunch.

So beautiful, we did it twice! We enjoyed the awesome scenery, amazing short hikes, various biomes, and several wildlife sightings! Take the older dirt road if possible. It is one way going toward Grand Lake.

Absolutely a beautiful ride in mid-September when the aspen trees are turning. We love taking this ride as there are many scenic spots along the way where you can take out a picnic lunch and enjoy the scenery.

This was a spectacular drive through the mountains. Something to see from every window! There are small areas you can pull off and get out of your car to get a better look and take pictures. You don't get bored at all as the landscape is so incredible. The kids were even in awe!! Such a treat. There are gas... More

we loved everything about this! Very pretty and awesome, we loved the views, I disliked the steep roads lol being from Ok where it is mainly flat I was scared to death of the mountain roads, but it was worth every minute of it!
