Words can't do the drive justice. It is an awesome drive from Boulder to Estes Park and recommend the drive from Boulder to Estes over the opposite drive back - more scenic. Lots of quaint little towns along the way.

Don't be afraid to try an edible or two, prior to your fantastic drive. Turn the music off; roll down the windows, and be amazed at your new driving skills. Don't forget to also drive through the RMNP. It will be the best $20... you'll ever spend...except at L'eagle which is the best source of fun we've found in a... More

My husband and I traveled from Central City to Estes Park via the Peak to Peak Scenic Highway this past Sunday. We had traveled this route before and loved it but the changing Autumn colors of the Aspen this year are the most spectacular we have ever seen. We saw an old mine too that we missed on our previous... More

Nice paved road with lotso pull over spots for scenic overlooks. Then I remember this gorgeous lake I think it was The Lily Lake, that we stopped at and walked around. My At&T signals were scant but radio reception was good, in case you forget your ipod etc at home like us. The fall colors were not yet prominent thru... More

Take it slow and enjoy the scenery. Just remember to pull over for those who don't have the patience to look around them and take in Mother Nature's beauties.

This is a very relaxing and scenic drive. Be sure to stop at St. Malo church, this is where the Pope visited recently.

We enjoyed this drive. Its an easy drive and quite pretty. About 10 or 15 minutes out of Estes park be sure to stop at lily lake. There's a beautiful easy 1 mile loop hike around the lake. There are also a couple of other hikes off the lake. There are restroom facilities (port-a-potty style). A great little hike for... More

We were here in April & had really nice warm weather & then it snowed when we were driving up to Rocky Mountain National Park & hiking there. It was magnificent! This drive is one not to miss if you are in this area of Colorado. Gorgeous mountain scenery & the drive isn't all that bad at all. There was... More
