Transportation & Views

Colorado TransportationWhether it’s walking, biking, or driving, Colorado is full of trails and scenic drives that showcase the breathtaking landscapes. 

Drive up the highest paved road in North America in Idaho Springs, just outside of Denver.  Mount Evans Road takes you from a starting point of 8,700 ft up to an amazing 14,240 ft!  On the way, you will get to see bighorn sheep, mountain goats, lakes, forests, and even the bristlecone pine trees which are over 1,700 years old! If you’re an avid road biker, test your endurance and see how far up you can make it. 

Another popular drive is the Peak to Peak Scenic Highway that takes you through the awe-inspiring Rocky Mountain National Park, near Estes Park, to Clear Creek Canyon just west of Denver.  Come in the fall and witness the Aspen leaves turn from green to vibrant shades of yellow, orange and red. 

Colorado Driving Maps

Behold the beauty of the mountains in a slower fashion by hiking the Colorado Trail.  Beginning in Waterton Canyon, the trail will have you traveling through six national forests, six wilderness areas and eight mountain ranges.  Bikes and horses are also welcome on the Colorado Trail, which stretches across the state from the canyon all the way to Durango

Colorado transportation can mean a cruise through the red rock canyon walls on the Scenic Rim Rock Drive on your motorcycle for a road tour you will never forget. Or, it can mean a Denver shuttle to your ski vacation.

In addition to the picturesque highways and byways, Colorado offers many different forms of transportation to get you around the great state.  Major airports are located in Denver and Colorado Springs with options for rental cars, Colorado shuttle services, limo services, buses, and trains to help you reach your final destinations. Denver shuttle services and options throughout the smaller cities and towns are many and varied.
