A day trip to the top is a journey that snakes and climbs through nearly 9,000 feet of elevation gain, from the high plains of Denver through five climate zones to the 14,264-foot summit of Mount Evans – one of 54 peaks in Colorado that soar to 14,000 feet and above – the famous “fourteeners.” Because of snow, the Mount Evans Scenic Byway is generally open to cars only from Memorial Day to Labor Day. To "bag" this fourteener, head west from Denver on I-70 for 32 miles to Exit 240 at the town of Idaho Springs. Echo Lake Continue south on State Hwy. 103 for 14 miles, slowly climbing in elevation with new vistas in every direction until you reach lovely Echo Lake.

Although it is 10,600 feet above sea level and 40 miles from Denver, Echo Lake is part of Denver's unique mountain park system.
