Makes you fall in love!

Awesome views of the Upper Arkansas River Valley! Made me fall in love with this area & move here! Points out all the peaks and points out avalanche chutes! Great Overlook!

This is such a beautiful area of Colorado that everyone should come to this part of the Rockies. It is also a very reasonably priced area to vacation.

The view of Collegiate Peaks is absolutely stunning. My heart jumps every time I see it and there's really only one way to describe it: Home.

If you are driving through and are close, definitely stop by. Unless you are going to go climbing, this is some of the best views you are going to get along with collegiate peaks. You are 'supposed' to pay which is kind of silly.

If you are visiting here a stop is definitely worth your time for the amazing views of the Collegiates. There are bathrooms and you can walk around or walk the dog but the main thing is the views. Stunning!

The Collegiate peaks are significant mountains adjacent to the Colorado Trail. This overlook is a great place to understand the lay of the land.

A nice picnic ground with riding trails and plenty of tables and restrooms. Day use is $7 per vehicle. Amazing views of the Collegiate Peaks!

Wish there was better signage for mountain names. Many of them are just signs along the road and no place to pull over.

Although a relative helped me to learn which peaks were named what, not everyone has that help. From this vantage point, you can see all the main peaks and learn which one is Mt Princton, Mt Yale, etc... There is a picnic area and it is a good quick stop as you make your way between Buena Vista and points... More

The Collegiate Peaks Scenic Overlook is a perfect place to stop and enjoy the views, have a picnic lunch, and take some gorgeous photos. You can easily see the entire Collegiate Peaks mountain range, and the views are breathtaking.
