  • This is an interesting place to view the valley below and to see bristlecone pines up close. These twisted gnarled trees are ancient and show the marks of time. There's a small nature center and a...

  • To get there you will drive the highest altitude road in the USA! When you get there you'll see the wonderful structures on top and a very nice path that takes you to the top of the mountain. The view is breathtaking! We were also very lucky to meet on the way up 2 big herds of mountain goats and big horn 🐏.
  • Such a beautiful place! There’s some nice walking trails around where you can look at all the different nature that is able to survive in the cold winters, lots of great information and facts about animals and plant species I have never heard of. The walking trail was beautiful!
  • It's a quaint stop on the way up to the peak with fantastic information of the flora and fauna of the area. The written information in the center is easy to read and brimming with all kinds of interesting information. I took the time to read all of them. Gave me a new appreciation for how slow-growing and fragile this ecosystem actually is. Nevin is a gem of a docent and chock-full of even more interesting facts and stories. He knows the answer to virtually any question regarding botany and the surrounding ecosystem. He was very friendly and engaging and you know he loves what he does. I can't say enough about how great he was and how much I learned at this little outpost! There is also a great little hike, maybe an hour or so, that starts from the center, among the trees, and you eventually find yourself beyond the tree line. It was cool to read/learn about the plants/ecosystem and see it outside.
  • Gorgeous view, it reminds Japanese garden. There are few nice short trails. I’d love to come back. Very convenient system to purchase tickets online.
  • One of the best places to go for a natural high and a great stepping stone for doing a fourteener. The M Walter Pesman trail starts directly behind the nature center and continually gains elevation until you emerge at an upper parking lot further along Mt. Evans Rd. The Pesman trail wends its way through ancient Bristlecone Pine forest while offering sweeping vistas of the Mt. Evans area. On the right day you can literally walk with your head in the clouds.
