Towering 4,348 m (14,265 ft) above the Great Plains, Mount Evans serves as a symbol of the Denver skyline and the site of the highest paved road in North America. The peak represents one of Colorado's "fourteeners," mountains standing more than 4,267 m (14,000 ft) high. You can hike and drive along its extensive network of trails and roads. As you make your way to the summit, you'll be treated to sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and plains; keep an eye out for the occasional grazing buffalo. Take precautions before you go--the peak's extreme weather at the summit and its height can cause altitude sickness. Add Mount Evans to your Denver travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Denver trip planner.

  • It is a lovely and large mountain, worthy of a visit and a snapshot or two. Look for sheep and drive cautiously.

  • It's worth the trip-look for mountain sheep tucked into rocks/trees. Do go on sunny day so you can see surrounding city/states.
