We drove around Lookout Mountain. The drive is great. Beautiful views, winding roads going up one side and down the other. We stopped at one of the many spots and took pictures.

We went here on a very foggy and snowy day so we couldn't see any kind of view. I would still recommend it if you are in Golden. A cool gift shop with a great dog who lives there.

Beautiful drive up Lookout Mtn with places along the road to pull off for pictures. At the top we enjoyed the museum history and gravesite of Buffalo Bill. Extremely interesting to history buffs.

We spent an afternoon on Lookout Mountain. The drive up is very scenic and we stopped at multiple lookout points. Watch for bikers especially early in the day. We stopped at the Buffalo Bill Museum at the top which is worth seeing. Also, check out...More

I would go back there in a heartbeat just for the views alone !!! And the cafe has pretty good food also. I took about 100 pics up there and I've looked through them a dozen times, and none of them captures what it really...More

The trip up from Golden was great for me. My wife wasn’t too happy with the tight switchbacks and many bike riders. The top is worth it if you like a good view.

My friend and I had some time to kill so we drove up and back. There are many good views and we saw a couple mule deer. If you have the time go to Mnt Evans, it’s a similar and a much better experience.

When visiting the Denver area, be sure to take this drive. It’s a good one for those that want the view without the hike...there are hikes though if you would want to park. The views of Golden and Denver in the distance are great. Be...More

Nice view towards Rockies and Denver. Really interesting. I was there with Gray Line and found myself well taken care

Yeah, it should be fine for the RV's. There's plenty of room on the road for two big vehicles and parking at a few different areas.

There are lots of trails around Golden. I would recommend going up to Castle Rock rather than Chimney Gulch (up Lookout Mtn) or Apex. It is a much shorter hike (about 200 m vertical and perhaps 30 minutes up), but it is... More
