Great little parks, good bike trails with several trail heads. There are a few touristy stops like buffalo bills museum up the mountain and the Coors brewery in nearby Golden. I see paragliders flying all over the mountain-might try that someday. And don't forget to check out Lookout Mountain Nature Center.

Beautiful scenery. Awesome views of Golden and Denver. The drive was easy. Lots of bicyclists on the road, be careful! There is a charge for Buffalo Bills museum. Beautiful area.

Great views from Lookout Mountain of the Denver skyline, mountains in and around the Golden area. Buffalo Bill's grave a short easy hike from the parking lot. Great gift shop and quick restaurant and snack shop. Lots of short hiking paths. Many bicyclists on the road, so be careful coming around a curve.

The drive is short but the views are great. Doesn't take much time at all. Like other reviews stated, there are many bicyclists so watch out for them and share the road. Don't rush it and take it all in.

The road to the top is very twisty with steep drop offs so it isn't for the faint of heart. The reward is fine views over Golden and well beyond. Buffalo Bill's grave is interesting.

Nice picture spot. Lots of parking. Great view and you can see everything and then all the buildings sticking out from downtown Denver. Spent about 15 minutes at this spot to take a couple pictures.

What a day we had on lookout mountain. Traveling with 3 kids ages 2, 9 & 12 and we all had such a good time. We took in the breathtaking views visited the Nature Center, Buffalo Bills Grave and Museum. It is so worth the drive up and the views are spectacular. This is a must in the area.

This is a must see when you are in Denver. Small park with a covered picnic area and a few tables. Amazing views from the park area, but the best part was the drive down to Golden. The scenery is incredible and you take the long, winding road to Golden.
