The Perfect Colorado Fall Drives for Your Volkswagen

The air is cooling and the first signs of winter are upon us here in the Denver area. Before winter hits full fledge, you’ll want to soak up the remaining bits of the season. Don’t let fall pass you by without going on these fall drives that are a little outside of Denver to take in the beautiful changing Colorado foliage.

Less Than an Hour Away

Drive up to see the Golden Gate Canyon State Park where you can see aspen groves and the Rocky Mountains. The park is only 30 miles from Denver and its Panorama Point Scenic Overlook allows visitors to see miles and miles of the Continental Divide. Ideally, you can drive here all throughout October to see the breathtaking Colorado foliage. 


Head about 45 minutes outside the city to Evergreen to see all types of autumn colors. If you’re ready to stretch your legs, take a hike at Three Sisters Park. You can also mountain bike, horseback ride, climb, or take a leisurely picnic. 


One Hour Away

Sunday drives are an ideal way to reconnect and relax prior to the new week. Head to Georgetown and Silver Plume to see plenty of aspens putting on a fall show. Ideally, you should take this drive prior to the end of October as it is at an elevation of 7,000 to 9,000 feet.

Trade the car’s views for a different kind of view and hop on the Georgetown Loop Railroad®. Depending on your chosen adventure, the ride can cost from $25 to $50. 


Over an Hour Away

If you’re ready for a longer Denver fall drive, take a trip up to the Peak to Peak Highway. The byway is less than 60 miles in length and allows you to take in views of autumn, in addition to the Front Range and Rocky Mountain National Park. 


No matter where you’re headed to take in the Colorado foliage before winter is here to stay, make sure you’re prepared for the season that’s just around the corner with tires that can help ensure you’ll be safe no matter the road conditions. Save this month: when you buy three tires, you’ll only pay a shiny penny for the fourth here at Larry H. Miller Volkswagen Lakewood.
