We started our journey here at about 1 got back at about 9. Made pretty much every scenic stop along the way to take it all in. Was a beautiful view from the top. You can drive about 99% of the way to the top with a short 15 minute hike to the peak. Without all the stops the drive from downtown denver was about 1 hour 45 minutes. But you won't be able to drive all the way through without stopping to take in the scenery.

My cousin took me up and the drive was beautiful. We saw mountain goats, a pika, and a marmot. Luckily my cousin knew I would have elevation sickness so he recommended bringing water. The oxygen in the water really helped.

Gorgeous views! Like nothing we've ever seen! Drive is long, steep, lots of sharp curves, but completely worth it!!!

A must stop for all. You drive up the narrow road way to about the top and walk the last 200 yards. They are a castle in sky. Beautiful views!!

Spectacular drive up the highest paved road in North America. Bring a jacket and your camera and maybe a candy bar and head up!
