2 Days of Mountains, Forests & Bighorn Sheep on Guanella Pass
Summit a fourteener or two, catch a glimpse of bighorn sheep and marvel at Colorado's vibrant fall foliage as you tour Guanella Pass.
There are special places and unique vistas around nearly every Colorado corner. You can help ensure these places exist for generations to come by staying on roads and trails, keeping speeds in check, leaving campsites and picnic spots just as you found them, and following instructional signs while you’re out and about in our state.
Bag one of Colorado's most popular fourteeners — aka a mountain that hits the 14,000-foot mark — with this 3-mile hike through the Lincoln National Forest.
Stop by the Georgetown Wildlife Viewing Area to catch a glimpse of our state animal — the bighorn sheep.
Hike all — or just part — of this 9.4-mile, moderate out-and-back trail to catch spectacular views of meadows and golden aspen leaves.
Drive to the top of Mount Evans, then hike a short distance to its 14,265-foot apex for views of alpine lakes, glacial valleys and wildlife. The road to the summit closes the day after Labor Day, so plan accordingly.
