Doghead Rail Bridge Trailhead

Mt. Evans Drive

We're doing it again. If you've never experienced "the road into the sky", you're missing out! This is one of the most scenic drives in the country and is the highest paved road in North America. It's an epic drive, especially with the top down, climbing about 9,000 feet in 23 miles.

No RSVP Required
Hope to see you there.

Time & Location

Aug 09, 2022, 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM

Doghead Rail Bridge Trailhead, 964-970 East Idaho Springs Road, Idaho Springs, CO

About the Event

Meetup: Meet at 8:30am at the Doghead Rail Bridge Trailhead Parking lot off I-70.  The GPS address is 964-970 East Idaho Springs Road Evergreen, CO 80439.  We will leave at 9:00am sharp.   Sorry for the rather early start, but we want to have enough time to enjoy the drive and still get off the mountain no later than mid-afternoon to avoid possible inclement weather.  The drive from Doghead to the Welcome Center is about an hour and is a great one too.

Details: Please be sure to make your own reservation ahead of time at this site: as there are no tickets available at the Welcome Center.  Reserve the 10:00-12:00 entry window.  Don't delay in making your reservations as they are limited.

Print your ticket out ahead of time (or download to your phone) as there is no cell phone signal.  We'll take a leisurely drive up to the top and plan to be off the mountain by mid afternoon.  Bring a jacket as it can be very cool up there.  And bring a hat/sunblock and plenty to drink to avoid dehydration.

Option: Plan to pack a lunch to eat along the way or at the top if you'd like.

RSVP: Online reservations required!  RSVP here, or shoot me an email if you're going so we can watch for you at Doghead.  For any additional information contact Craig Gardner at
