Take a break and let the kids out after a long drive and let them run around while you soak in one of the most beautiful views offered in Colorado. Take the time and pull off tot the side of the road to take these...More
Lots of opportunities for photos going up or down the pass with several pullout spots available. Don't be surprised if you see large oil and gas trucks doing the pass since they are not allowed through Eisenhower Tunnel and this is the way around. Wouldn't...More
Visited in February so the snow was still deep. We loved the pass view though even in the snow. The out of bounds skiers were super cool to see as well. Short detour from Keystone back to the interstate. We came out right by the...More
We enjoyed the Loveland Pass. It was a relatively short pass, and it wasn't as tight as some of the other drives in Colorado. We really enjoyed the scenery. Stopped at some pullouts for pictures. Really loved the area in Dillon with the lake and...More
The Continental Divide needs no explanation. If you are in the area of Loveland Pass you must go and stop the car to take it all in. The beauty of the area and its panoramic views will take your breath away. ( and at 11,990...More

A couple of Ideas:
1 ==> the top loveland pass would work. All you do is drive to the car park at the top and walk to the other side of the road were there is a great view to the west also there is a sign showing that you are on the Continental divide.
2 ==> you can just ride up in one of the gondola at keystone to the top where you can have your ceremony then ride the gondola back down. You could also have some food or drinks prior to going back down.
3 ==> Keystone also has a lake, that is keep cleared, this area is easily accessible and has a wide verity of different pictures opportunities .
I recommend Loveland pass there and Eisenhower back. Make sure to stop on the top of Loveland to enjoy the views and take pics. There will still be snow there and it's always windy and colde so have warm clothes. Enjoy!
We'll be in Keystone for four days beginning July 11 and wondering if there are any wildflowers around there or the Loveland Pass area to see at that time. Also suggestions for any good pubs/microbrews in the area would be appreciated. I posted a similar message on the Keystone forum several days ago and got no replies so thought I'd try here.

Just trying to bump this up for you. I am not sure about that area, but in many of the higher elevations (such as Telluride, Ouray, Silverton, etc) typical wildflower peak is about the last week of June, first week of July. Altho, there are still plenty to be seen later into the summer. Keystone is as high or higher than some of these areas, so I would think you should see flowers.

My son and I will be in Denver in September for a college visit to the University of Denver. We will arrive Thursday night, spend Friday visiting the school and exploring 16th Street Friday night. We visited last summer for a few Rockies games and worked in a day trip to Pikes Peak and another day trip over Loveland Pass to Keystone and Dillon. This trip we would like to spend Saturday September 15 travelling Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mountain National Park. We have an early...More

I visited DU with my son last month - loved it. Good luck and enjoy. On the right side of the trip advisor forum, one of our DE's has an informative thread on the TRR timeline. Take I-25 from Denver up to exit 243 and take 66/36 into EP. Grab a sammich at Safeway or a burrito at Tulum's and hit the road. Take the timeline info from there. You won't go wrong.

Loveland Pass (9 Replies)
I'm in the process of planning my trip to CO in April 2019. I really want to see Loveland Pass, but I am worried about the drive there. I am SERIOUSLY TERRIFIED OF HEIGHTS. I would love to hear from others about how wide the road is; if there are guard rails; if there are steep cliffs on the side of the road; and if there are - for approximately how many minutes of the drive. Is it dangerous driving there? Is there an "easier" route to get there? I am trying not to give into my stupid fear of...More

Its pretty dramatic. Go to google maps, turn on street view, and click your way along to virtually drive it first. Its not dangerous...18 wheelers use it.
