The Mount Evans Road is now open all the way to the summit. I was able to ride a bicycle all the way to the summit parking lot today and made the brief hike to the official summit. There are are some puddles and gravel on the road, especially around Summit Lake, but nothing that is not manageable (even on a road bike).

Abyss Lake?     2013-05-26 18:59:21
Did you happen to notice how much snow is remaining in the Abyss Lake drainage- the valley between Evans and Bierstadt north of the Sawtooth? Any insight into conditions of the Sawtooth, or the terrain between Sawtooth and Evans summit? Any pics?

Thanks for the info! We're going up there tomorrow so the info was very useful

@James Scott, I didn't get a good look at Abyss Lake, so I can't say.

@ylingli, the summit highs are probably only going to be in 40 degree range tomorrow, so prepare accordingly.

Did you get a look at the west ridge? Planning to do Evans soon and was wondering if microspikes or snowshoes will be needed.
