“Wonderful mountain views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

This winding rode south of Estes Park is a beautiful drive. Take your time and make some stops along the way. You'll pass Lilly Lake which is worth a stop. Along the way you will see what looks like a tiny European castle on a rock, complete with moat. This is St. Catherine's Chapel. Pull over for a visit. It is a beautiful little church.

“Rocky Mountain Splendor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

We traveled the Peak to Peak Highway from Estes Park to I-70. The roadway provides mountain vistas of Longs Peak and Mount Meeker and many others. While Big Thompson Canyon is a treat, this drive is far superior. It is the slow route that parallels I-25, and is well worth the time. You pass through interesting communities like Nederland where there is an annual Frozen Dead Guy Festival. For a great lunch or dinner experience, stop by the Bald Pate Inn just south of Estes Park (reservation recommended).
