Squaw Pass–Mount Evans Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Approach Mount Evans from the east for a change, climbing Squaw Pass Road to reach Echo Lake. See a new side of the mountain and a new side of yourself on this formidable super epic. The traditional route up 14,200-foot Mount Evans (and the route of the famous race) begins just outside Idaho Springs. That’s a beautiful section of road, from Idaho
Evening descends on Squaw Pass Road near Juniper Pass.
Squaw Pass Road Springs to Echo Lake, and you should definitely ride it even if you have no intention of turning at Echo Lake and conquering Evans. However, if you’re looking for something a little different, have a go at Evans from the other side, via Squaw Pass Road. Start from Bergen Park, the commercial development on Evergreen Parkway, and climb, climb, climb."
