It was beautiful but we did not come prepared for the cold and wind. It was a hard drive but the sites are breathe taking. All the snow and trees are so nice. We made it 14, 270!!!!!

Worth the trip if you want to see amazing views. Be careful of all the bikes and as get near the top take your time as there is only room for one car going up or down. Make a pit stop at Echo Lake -...More

It was definitely worth every minute that we spent there as cold as it was. You need to make sure you bring a jacket, a winter jacket. On the top of the mountain it was 20° . Pictures do not do any justice for the...More

GORGEOUS views! We made it up in time to see the sunrise. Once you make it to the summit, it is definitely worth climbing to the top to see 360 degree views! Make sure you dress warmly (layers—sweatpants, sweatshirts, etc.; we learned that gloves would’ve...More

I live in Denver but want to do something different for Father's Day. Drove there in a sunny weather around 85 and got up there to have rain and hail. But it's a lot of fun. The trail to the top is pretty hard, expecially...More

Several levels of trails to get to the summit including the ability to drive to within a few hundred years. Well worth the hike up.

By walking up a short path, you too, can conquer one of Colorado's 14'ers. A LOT of tourists and that means a lot of traffic. Make sure to go early in the day, to avoid afternoon mountain rains (and associated lightening)
