This starts from a short drive from Denver.
The road trip takes you through a nice scenery and lots of interesting places to stop.

If you have some time to kill ,driving the loop is okay. Some touristy stops, views are just okay along the route. Getting onto the loop is tricky - would suggest stopping in Golden at the Visitors Info Center to get clear directions from town...More
We were coming to the area to see my nephew perform with the Central City Opera. My wife discovered a write-up on this scenic drive in a magazine about Denver when doing research in preparation for our trip to this area. I was pleasantly surprised....More
This was a very enjoyable scenic highway. Sometimes it was a bit hard to know where you were supposed to go. It wasn’t well marked in places. Other reviews said roads were scary
And hair pin turns. It wasn’t bad at all. It was definitely...More

They both have spectacular views. Morrison to Evergreen, up Hwy 74 is probably more fascinating. Watch for the "kissing bears" rock formation on the left side of the road, going up. Going up and down on I-70 is spectacular mostly because of the view when you get to the top of Vernon Canyon and see the panoramic view of the Rockies and the Continental Divide. Going down you get to see the panorama of the plains that then stretch to the Mississippi River. Use a lower gear and don't burn out your breaks, which can be embarrassing and or deadly.
