The final five miles of the road to the top of Mount Evans will close after this long Labor Day weekend.

After that, you’ll still be able to drive as far as Summit Lake until early October, conditions permitting.

Winter comes early to Colorado’s highest peaks, as we saw with the snow Pikes Peak has been getting.
