Driving up the road can be daunting if you have not navigated mountain roads with lots of switchbacks. Be careful of the bikers and runners that use this road. Share it with them. Enjoy the view from the top rather than while driving. View is excellent of Golden, Denver in the distance and the plains. At the top is Buffalo Bill's grave and his wife (William F. Cody). There is a small museum dedicated to him and a small restaurant and gift shop. Worth a visit.
