This place provides one of the rare views of the Clear Creek Valley and Canyon where Coors Beer primary production facility occupies a prominent part of the view to the east. The selection of souvenir grade offerings run the gambit from really interesting area pieces to cheap stuff found in almost any souvenir shop. I've personally found some nice objects... More

I was immediately drawn to this location. The view is as far as the eye can see on a clear day overlooking the East, from above Golden, CO until the Earth begins to curve. It is definitely someone should see. The road continues through to another highway. Just take the entire loop.

This is a fun road for car or bike, but CAUTION is imperative for anyone climbing or decending this hill! Both motorists and bikers need to be aware of eachother.

Plan your visit a little later in the day. When we got there it was shrouded in clouds. The views are spectacular once the sun burns off the cloud cover.

Lookout Mountain is on a road with quite a few houses with wonderful views of the countryside. It is a paved road and not very steep. It offers a great view of Golden.

I was obviously not the first to be inspired by the views from this site. It was so worth the trip up here from Golden. One of the quotes from the museum is that "you can see four states from here." Looking out over Denver and the surrounding countryside is truly inspiring. You need to check it out.

Nice drive with excellent views of Golden on the east side. Just beware of all the bikers-some are very inconsiderate, others just plan unsafe. Nonetheless, its nice drive with both city and mountain views.
