“White knuckler...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We needed to kill some time before our flight so drove up this scenic mountain. Lots of twists, turns, switchbacks, but what made it even more difficult of a drive was all the bicyclers! Had to keep stopping, waiting around the bends for them, it was crazy. I know that these folks are junkies for this stuff, but they should have a bike only day each week, to keep them and us safe. View was nice from the top.

“Big mountain with excellent views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Visited Lookout Mountain and the Buffalo Bill museum/gravesite as part of our Denver vacation. The drive up the mountain (from 19th St. in Golden) was a breath taker! Every curve of the road brought another fantastic view of Golden and the more-distant landscape. Several hang gliders were using the mountain for some early Saturday morning flights and seeing them was an added bonus to this venture.

“Lookout Mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Such a beautiful sight day or dusk.....if you are afraid of heights it can send your stomach into doing flips! We saw deer along side the road and just took our time. It is well worth the drive up to look, it is absolutely beautiful views!!!!

“Gorgeous views a stones throw from the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This is a regular place where we visit while living in Denver. We like to take the road up through Golden and enjoy watching the para sailers who take off at the top. Peaceful, easy to get to and a treasure for Denver.

“The views are spectacular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Not quite the same views as from Rocky Mountain National Park, but this is a neat place with ample parking and beautiful, pristine views along a great drive. Visit the nearby Lookout Mountain Nature Center - you won't be disappointed. This is totally worth a day trip. I would like to go back again someday.
