Mt. Evans Sunrise Trip
August 4 @ 4:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Marilyn Rhodes for an early morning adventure to the summit of Mt. Evans and an action packed trip down as the morning light grows, revealing amazing bird and animal life rising to greet a new day. Bring water, snacks, sunscreen, scopes and binoculars, cash, a hat and maybe a camera. Lunch or brunch may be had at the lodge at Echo Lake after the trip where hummingbirds may be viewed. There is a $10/car fee to use the road, if you do not have a National Parks Pass. In addition, there is a $5/car Denver Parks fee to use the park at Summit Lake.
Meeting Place: Bergen Park Park-n-Ride in Evergreen. Take I-70 west to Exit 252, Evergreen Parkway (CO-74). Continue on CO-74 south to County Highway 65 (Bergen Parkway) and turn left. Take the first right into the Bergen Park Park-n-Ride lot (1287 County Hwy 65, Golden, CO 80401). We will meet there at 4:00 am. Be prepared to carpool since parking is limited at many of the stops on the Mt. Evans Highway.
