Mount Evans tomorrow

Hi. Last day in Denver area tomorrow and would like to Mount Evans. Was at the Trail Ridge Road in the RMNP this morning. Got to around 11000 ft and the road was closed. It may have opened later. Does anyone have any info as to whether the summit is reachable.

Thanks

According to www.cotrip.org/truckers.htm CO 5 north and south bound the Mount Evans Scenic Byway is closed as of June 20 due to adverse conditions. You can check this site tomorrow for updates. Click on the red alert button for more details. Trail Ridge Road did open later in the day. Even if you can only go to Summit Lake, the Mount Evans Scenic Byway is a beautiful drive.

I would make some phone calls, and also check out Colorado Dept of Transportation at:

http://www.cotrip.org/roadConditions.htm

They are listing some closed roads in that area.

However, the Clear Creek Ranger district says that the road is open for the season:

Nope, I just looked at the above site: road closed due to recent snowfall

As of 2:01 pm today, the summit to Mt. Evans was open. Colorado is beautiful year round. Do come back and visit again!
