Colorado Springs to Vail

I will be driving from Colorado Springs to Vail and I am not sure of which route to take. I am thinking it will be quicker to drive I-25 to 470 to I-70 but I am thinking of taking U.S. 24 to Colo. 9 instead because of scenic reasons. How much longer would it take to drive from Colorado Springs to Vail via U.S. 24 to Colo. 9? I would be driving in June.

Going the back way (US 24) is a bit slower but the views are more spectacular. If you are driving for scenic reasons go that way. I-70 route is only about 20 minutes faster, by my history of driving both many times. June is a beautiful time. All will be lush & green. Enjoy.

Thanks for everybody’s responses, I think I will take U.S. 24 since it is not much longer in driving time.
