“A must see!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Visited on our honey moon. We went once during the day and were fortunate to see wild elk. We went once at night to see the view of the city's silhouette. This was beautiful but ruined by punks going up there with arm loads of booze. Disrespectful. Also encountered drag racers. And graffiti as someone previously mentioned. I am still glad we went up there though.

“nice drive, lots of hiking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

There's a pit toilet at the car park. We only did a short hike but there were loads of other hikers further up the mountain (young and loud). Loved the wildflowers! Very wooded trail to keep out of sun when we were there.

“Beautiful Drive outside Golden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Wonderful drive starting out near the Buffalo Herd Overlook. Once you reach the top, you can stop at the Lookout Mountain park and then head up to Buffalo Bill Museum and gaze down toward Golden and Denver.

“Great History lesson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I had a blast. My children did not want to go here at all. Once we went to Buffalo bills grave and muesem they thanked me for taking them, I would recommend to anybody. Just be careful of the tons of bicycle riders. The view from the top looking across Golden is nothing short of spectacular
