Even if you only have limited time in the Denver/Golden area, I'd recommend a side trip up to Lookout Mountain. It is an easy drive, and although the road has a few twists and turns, it is navigable and easy compared to most other high-mountain ascents by car.

Do the Lariat Loop, too, if your time permits. The Buffalo Bill Cody burial site, and gift shop is worth a stop even in the COLD weather. We saw deer, and an Apert squirrel to reward our travel in 1 degree weather with snow.

Gorgeous views. Enjoyed the drive up the mountain. Lots of scenic pull offs. Was amazed to see many people running or biking this steep road. Truly enjoying all of Colorado's mountain scenery so far. Buffalo bill museum and grave at the top for the history buffs.

Look out mountain road has great mountain vistas. Also is location of Buffalo Bill's Museum, Mother Cabrini Shrine, Lookout Mountain Nature Center and is part of the Lariat Loop National Scenic Byway. Well worth it if you like a good side road in the mountains with great views.

The area was lovely to view from the car. We were sad but understood that dogs were not allowed on the trails.

We drove up from Golden on a beautiful October afternoon. Upon arriving at the property we took some time at the visitor center, and then wandered over to the original property and explored. It is a beautiful piece of property.

While many people choose to bike to the top of the mountain, we decided to drive. The views of the rockies at the top are breathtaking. You also get great views of Golden and Denver. Definitely add this to your list of things to do.

Views are stunning specially at night. Night views of the city are amazing. Beautiful place to appreciate nature during the day or city lights at night.
