I love taking this drive when needing time to unwind. Plenty of hiking trails and you can stop for coffee at the top. Excellent views.

We could see Golden CO where were were staying as well as the Denver skyline and incredible view of the 13K foot mountains to the west. Gorgeous views driving up the mountain too~

The drive to Lookout Mountain is beautiful. The park is very nice with plenty of picnic tables as well as a picnic shelter. The views are beautiful and well worth the short drive from Denver.

If you want to experience a true "Rocky Mountain high" (i.e., over 7,000 feet), this is the place to do it. From here, on a clear day, you can literally see for miles, all the way to downtown Denver and beyond. Also Buffalo Bill's grave...More

When in the area do drive up Lookout Mountain. It's a lovely ride and what you see once you get there is amazing. Take along a picnic lunch and eat that at the top.

Stopped by here to check out the view. Absolutely amazing! From looking at the snow top mountains to the overlook of Golden this is a neat stop off I-70.

Stopped here on a trek through the Rocky Mountains. Gorgeous view of the snowcaps and the valley below. Just meander and look at the surrounding country side!

While visiting with family I enjoyed a solo drive to the top of Lookout Mountain. Great hiking trails at the top, wish I had more time to hike the area. Great road and amazing scenery!

We drove around Lookout Mountain. The drive is great. Beautiful views, winding roads going up one side and down the other. We stopped at one of the many spots and took pictures.

Yeah, it should be fine for the RV's. There's plenty of room on the road for two big vehicles and parking at a few different areas.

There are lots of trails around Golden. I would recommend going up to Castle Rock rather than Chimney Gulch (up Lookout Mtn) or Apex. It is a much shorter hike (about 200 m vertical and perhaps 30 minutes up), but it is... More
