Mount Evans Summit Trail Via Mount Evans Road is a 1.7 mile out and back trail located near Idaho Springs, Colorado and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and snowshoeing and is best used from December until February.
Steep and beautiful. Air is a bit thin for this Clevelander, but we did alright for our first day. Aspens bright yellow. Lots of cliffs and stunning vistas. About 6 hours round trip to upper lake (summit adds 2 hours or so).
Mt. Evans 1.5 mile route, steep! This is an aggresive route, but worth it as you look back @ the changing view on the way up.
