Take the half hour for this lovely drive and your life will be enriched. Watch for the bikes. The Buffalo Bill Museum is a take it or leave it type of place but definitely go for the drive up and back and stop to experience the view for a few minutes. There were several trail heads that also looked inviting.

Lookout Mountain is worth going to. There is no fee to drive up there and it is an easy drive. The view is beautiful on a clear day. There are the high peaks to the west and the low plains to the east. Fantastic view of Denver and Golden.

What an interesting museum devoted to the life and times of Buffalo Bill. The real thrill is getting up Lookout Mountain to the top. This is a road with continuous hairpin turns and trying to avoid bicyclists and hikers who ride or walk right on the edge is not for an inexperienced driver. The views of the mountains on one...

The museum is at the top of Lookout Mountain. The artifacts in the museum are outstanding. They have a video of his life and the shows he put on that was really interesting. I really liked the displays of antique guns and ammunition as well as the paintings of him. There are notebooks filled with places the Buffalo Bill Shows... More

Great views and the gift shop was huge. The cafe was good as well. When we have more time we'll definitely visit the museum itself.

It's a beautiful bike ride (easier than it looks) as well as a nice drive (but watch out for all the bikes!).

Can see for miles on clear day. Ours started out misty, but improved later. Ride down mountain winding and steep, but fun and sightful.

After visiting the Red Rock Amphitheater a few miles away, we decided to make this our next stop. A very scenic and winding road to the top of the mountain and we arrived at the Lookout Mountain. BEAUTIFUL Views of the mountains to the west, and down to the town of Golden to the North. So glad we took a... More

I spent some of my grade school years living in Denver and we frequently made the trip to Lookout Mountain to see the grave of Buffalo Bill Cody. It's changed some but is mostly the same. The grave is nothing spectacular but what is spectacular is the mountain-top view of the Rockies and the Denver metro area, particularly of Golden.... More

Of course I think Lookout Mtn. is fabulous, I live there. The views are spectacular, wild life abundant, people are friendly and we do have modern conveniences. Be sure to visit Buffalo Bill's grave. The views east and west from the parking lot are great.
