One of my favorite Colorado scenic drives. Stop in Estes and Nederland.

Did this drive as part of our week long loop trip in Sept. of 2016. Getting off I-70 just before Idaho Springs, we drove up thru Central City, and then out to see the east portal of the Moffat tunnel in Rollinsville, just as a train had come thru. We spent the first 2 nights in Nederland. Then we drove from there up to Estes Park for a few days. Great drive with lots of places to see along the way. Aspens were just starting to turn color. Another great stretch of scenic highway in Colorado!!

We, too, did this in September and the drive was beautiful. Starting in Estes, the view of Longs and Meeker Peaks to forests filled with the fall color of aspens. Nederland is a quirky little place worth wondering around. Later, you come to the casino area of Black Hawk. Going beyond Black Hawk on 119 and 6 will lead you through some canyon areas and on to Denver.

Beautiful drive. Be sure to check out the Stanley when in Estes Park.

If you're looking for a Sunday drive around September 15th this is it!! Beautiful fall foliage, don't forget your camera. There are quite a few spots to pull over and enjoy the scenery.

Did this drive while visiting RMNP. We were staying in Estes Park, and drove down to Central City and back in one day. A very scenic drive, and we managed to lose a little money in the casinos.
