As Denver’s Top-Rated Local® Audi Service and Repair experts, we always understand why those who seek excellence are drawn to the German automaker. Working under the hood of these exceptional vehicles reminds us on a daily basis, just what phenomenal vehicles they really are. Call us crazy, but we believe that these special automobiles may sometimes get frustrated being limited to the municipal streets of Denver and its surrounding metro area. So we took the time to compile a list of Colorado’s most scenic roads that promise to give both you and your precious Audi the driving thrill that you’ve been craving. Before striking out on new adventures, however, make sure that your vehicle is up to the challenge with a full tune-up or routine maintenance by the Audi repair professionals at Avalon Motorsports. End your summer with a mountain road trip on one of these unforgettable thoroughfares.
- Trail Ridge Road. Unbelievable views come courtesy of the nation’s highest continuous paved road as it winds over the continental divide through Rocky Mountain National Park. Plan for it soon though, such high elevations create enough snow to close the road fairly early in the cooler seasons and keep it closed all winter and most of the spring too.
- I-70 through Glenwood Canyon. Though it’s quite a bit of a drive down the interstate from Denver, the area of highway winding through the canyon just before the world-famous hot springs mecca provides the most beautiful canyon walls carved by the Colorado river. Make sure to bring a camera.
- Highway 14 through the Poudre River Canyon. Designated as a National Scenic Byway, the mountain highway winds from Fort Collins to the high-country area where Walden sits. As the last undammed river in Colorado, the Cache La Poudre cuts a beautiful path through the mountains.
- If you are ready for an overnight trip, head down to southern Colorado area to the San Juan Mountains and the Million Dollar Highway. Look for historic mining structures and awe-inspiring views along a good portion of the white-knuckle ride.
