I live 15 miles from Mt Evans and have visited the top many times. The view is spectacular with mt goats usually in attendance. Have lunch at the base in a 1920's log lodge overlooking Summit lake. Homemade pies will bring you back. We do it every year to see Aspen Colors.
If you go instead to Pikes Peak, try the Cog Railroad. The modern lodge at the top is open all year blizzards or not. about 3 years ago
