Words can't describe. Drove to the top. Afraid of heights. The last 14 miles are scary because road is small and winding. BUT...so worth it!!! Overcame the fear of heights because views were captivating. Just go slow and take your t e.

The trip up the mountain has so many beautiful views and abundance of wildflowers. There were beautiful views of Denver and beyond. We saw deer and chipmunks.

The experience drive up to the Mt. Evans was a quite challenge. The Scary part was when you go drive down the mountain with fog around you. We enjoyed the view.

Like so many natural attractions along the Front range (the mountains that border the plains of Colorado), Mount Evans has experienced heavy use over many decades. The scenery is pretty, but the amount of traffic and day use (picnics, hiking etc.) have made this a natural area feel more like an urban park rather than a place to enjoy nature.... More

Mt. Evans is close to Denver, Colorado. The drive to reach Mt. Evans makes a circle that provides rich scenery and allows tourist to sample the beauty Colorado offers. There are some neat cliff overlooks and panoramic viewpoints. The gift shop at the base of Mt. Evans offers souvenirs and some food. On the way to or from Mt. Evans... More

Great Challenging 2 lane paved road.Watch the signs if they say 10 MPH that what it means, have seen more than one bike go off the road. Some bicyclist on the road and hard to get around. Gravel from the Visitors center to the top of the mountain, but COLD if you go all the way up. Nice gift shop.... More

I came to Denver on a business trip and decided to take a drive up to Mount Evans. This place is amazing, really breath taking views. If your taking a drive up here I suggest you be careful as the road is a little narrow but don't let that deter you, you'll be fine. Climbing up to the summit was... More

It's a must see when in Colorado! Take plenty of water to drink and take your time. You'll be glad that you went all the way to the top.

One of my favorite things to do in the Denver area. It is a relatively short trip from Denver and mostly I70. Not for the squeamish mountain drivers but not as scary as Pikes Peak for me. Well worth a few white knuckle moments with some amazing views and a less crowded option than some more well known parks. If... More
