Mount Evans Highway officially opens to the peak today (Thurs, 6/8/17)

CLEAR CREEK COUNTY—The Colorado Department of Transportation has announced today that Mount Evans Highway (CO 5) is officially open up to the summit of Mount Evans (14,264 feet). CDOT crews have been working diligently to have the road clear and safe for motorists in time for summer.

The United States Forest Service oversees the Mount Evans Recreation Area, which more than 150,000 people visit each summer. Three developed sites are located along the corridor. Two are in the National Forest: Mount Goliath Natural Area and Nature Center and the Summit of Mount Evans Interpretive Site; while Summit Lake Park is owned by the City and County of Denver.

Visitors wishing to stop at all three sites may purchase both the $10 Forest Service pass and the $5 City of Denver pass at the Mount Evans Welcome Station, or they may choose to purchase just one or the other, depending on the destination. Fees are per vehicle. There is no fee for driving through the area unless you plan to visit one of these sites. Bicyclists are exempt from the fee. In addition, federal interagency passes are honored at all three sites.

Top five-mile segment of Mount Evans Highway closing for the season on September 5 2017


CLEAR CREEK COUNTY—The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will close the top five-mile segment of Mount Evans Highway - Colorado Highway 5 - for the season to vehicular traffic on Tuesday,September 5. CDOT typically closes this segment starting from Summit Lake the day after Labor Day, per agreement with the U.S. Forest Service to help protect the mountain summit's natural resources.

The road from Echo Lake to Summit Lake will remain open through Sept. 24.

After the road is closed from Echo Lake to the summit of Mount Evans in late September, CDOT will pave the Summit Parking Lot at the top peak and the parking lot at the North Goliath trail head.

CO 5 is scheduled to reopen for the summer season the Friday before Memorial Day, weather permitting.
