Peak-to-Peak Scenic and Historic Byway
Peak-to-Peak Scenic and Historic Byway Review
The Peak-to-Peak Scenic and Historic Byway (CO Hwys. 119, 72, and 7), a 55-mile stretch that winds from Central City through Nederland to Estes Park, is not the quickest route to the eastern gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, but it's certainly the most scenic. You'll pass through the old mining towns of Ward and Allenspark and enjoy spectacular mountain vistas. Mount Meeker and Longs Peak rise magnificently behind every bend in the road. The descent into Estes Park provides grand vistas of snow-covered mountains and green valleys.
An afternoon drive along this route is especially memorable in fall, when the sky is deeper blue and stands of aspens contrast with the evergreen pine forests.
