Here’s a really super Colorado scenic drive that lets you enjoy the very best parts of Colorado.

Parts II through V give you directions for the most scenic itinerary; Part VI helps you pick and reserve your overnight stays; and Part VII provides you with mountain safe driving and health hints.

Your trip focuses on what’s most beautiful in Colorado, but you also visit many of Colorado’s most historic spots, including Durango, Silverton, Ouray, Glenwood Springs, Manitou Springs, Telluride, and Mesa Verde National Park.

As expected, your route features mountains—beautiful mountains—big, tall, majestic mountains. You'll enjoy the thrilling “Million Dollar Highway” over the San Juan Range, go above the tree line in Rocky Mountain National Park, take a Swiss-style train up 14,000 foot Pikes Peak, and experience a surprising variety of Rocky Mountain wildlife.

You find ample opportunities to hike, photograph, swim, soak in hot springs, and just relax.

Many useful links help you plan.

This trips starts at Denver International Airport, but you can start anywhere along the route. You really need at least one full week to cover the basics. Take more time, if you can, or focus on just one part of the drive during the time you have.
