Very simply, this is a wonderful place to visit. On a clear day you see all over Colorado. It’s a beautiful drive and way to see one of the Fourteeners. I suggest going early in the morning. The limited parking fills up quickly.

Seeing the mountain goats on the top of Mt. Evans is a real thrill. It is the only place in Colorado that I have seen them and usually they can be seen on the top of Mt. Evans.

Very cool. Lots of big horn sheep and goats. Crazy cold at top in summer. Great views. Singular experience for kids (and adults) who can’t or won’t hike all day up and down 14k feet.

The drive to the top is really remarkable. You can see so far out, you really get the scope of the great west. We stopped at the little lake on the way up to stretch our legs. It was a great spot and we went...More
