“Gorgeous”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

I've climbed and driven it. This review is based on a drive. What can you really say? It's a stunningly beautiful drive up the mountain with several places to pull off and enjoy the scenery. You start down in the trees and work you way up above timberline. If you can't climb it on your own, this is the next best way to experience a 14er.

“what a view!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

This is where you see mountain goats, marmots & big horn sheep. Mt. Evans will not dissappoint! The climb to the top was not bad!

“Take the High Road”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Getting there is the trip: drive, bike or hike the highest paved road in the U.S. Do it before the mid-day clouds envelop the peak and compromise the horizons from this 14-er.

“Breath Taking”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

If you are Not scared of height's and would like to have your breath takin awayYou must see Mount Evans. Even if you are scared of height's you will still enjoy the Beauty. We went close to evening and saw the big horn sheep and mountain goat's. I wanted to build a cabin right then and there. Even if you have to save your pennies for ten year's go see that view you would not reget it. I can go on and on about it but I would like for you to see it for your self. You might just want to build the cabin right next to mine. Thank You Mother Nature and everyone else who had a hand in making that view.
