Stunning scenery all year long
Jul 2021
I've traveled this route many times over many years. The scenery is always beautiful, best enjoyed while traveling a bit more slowly. The road has some tight curves and it's important to always be watchful for wildlife.

Don't miss this one. Don't go on the freeway! Every view was more gorgeous than that last. Check out the beautiful little church built on the rock. So lovely!

Gorgeous views all along the way
Jul 2021 • Couples
More and more gorgeous views around every turn. Absolutely beautiful from one end to the other. Just have patience with traffic especially in Nederland. I wish there were more places along the way to grab a quick sandwich and drink for the road but we were prepared.

Nice day out from Estes Park
Jul 2021
Lovely drive, and satisfied my cravings for other towns, ghost towns, and other views.
Central City and Nederland were especially worthy of stops, along with any trailheads you might see. We stopped at the lovely Sourdough Trailhead. Very peaceful. Nederland had the frozen dead guy! and the Carrousel of Happiness, shops and a supermarket, should you need it. Central city has the teller house, and Lots of casinos here now, but I quit after $5 and took home $6.

Interesting Drive - Not as Wonderful at Night
Jun 2021
Go during the day, you will enjoy the scenery much better than if you go at night as we ended up doing. Absolutely breath-taking area to visit.

nice drive

Nice drive while leaving Estes Park. We stopped by the Chapel on the Rock and at a pull over spot to see the creek that runs by the road.

Beautiful views but doesn’t beat RMNP
Jun 2021 • Couples
We drove from Estes park to Black Hawk since we were going on our return flight out of Denver. It was very easy to navigate. However, since we already did the trails in RMNP and got to take in all those beautiful views, the scenic byway couldn’t be beat and didn’t seem necessary. The drive is beautiful but wont be beat if you already entered the park. It was nice to stop in Black Hawk though for a bit of Gambling - it’s a mini/mountain Las Vegas!

Old fashioned map
May 2021 • Couples
We suggest that you do not rely too much on satellite navigation. An old fashioned map would be better. We got lost many times. But eventually made it.

Worth stopping for pics!
May 2021
Nice pictures here, better to stop just passed the entrance and walk the path toward the church for the best shots.

Great way to get to and from Estes Park
May 2021
We traveled this road from Nederland to Estes Park and then after finishing our stay in Estes Park drove back down all the way to Black Hawk. Lots of great pull offs along the way and even if you don't want to pull off - tons of awesome sights to take in as you are driving.
