Nice beginner hike

Took a family hike. Easy to find. Beautiful scenery. Easy enough for the kids but still a bit of a challenge for beginners.

The entire road is now paved. The views are great along the way. Hiking and off roading available along the way.

It would have five stars, if there would not be a private lake with some nasty people living by. View fantastic, air clear, not much life other than tundra I would prefer to see some mountain goats as you see on Mt. Evans and other mountain animals that you see on other mountains here it looks as no animal likes... More

Love Guanella Pass and the waterfall on the way up from Georgetown. The river is so clear in this area is was breathtaking! Well worth the drive and especially in fall, so much color.

I drove it both directions from Georgetown to Grant and back. Drove very slowly. Stopped many times. Took some walks. Stared carefully at the mountains for long periods of time and with my zoom lens. No moose, no sheep. The views are breathtaking. But other reviewers make it sound like the moose and sheep are a given. They are not.

We took a long drive but were thrilled with wonderful views of the mountains and happening upon seven moose along the road! Very cool! A great way to spend several hours seeing the beauty of Colorado.

We drove Guanella Pass Road to reach Mt. Bierstadt. The drive is tortuous and scenic. We test drove to the mountain in daylight, and drove in pre-dawn darkness the day of the climb. Campers were being set up, and our lasting memory will be of a large herd of mountain sheep by the side of the road.

Recommend climb up Mt Bierstadt early in... More

Typically only open between Memorial Day to Labor Day because of snow accumulation. There are campgrounds on the 285 side of Guanella Pass, not sure about the Georgetown side. Parking lots for hiking Mt Bierstadt and the Guanella Pass Summit. If you aren't ready for a 14er the Square Top Lakes trail is good. It's 4.2 (round trip) miles, starting... More
