The views to the East are quite breathtaking from the viewing deck at Lookout mountain. While here make the walk up the trail to view Buffalo Bill's gravesite and take in the gift shop.

You can’t beat the scenery and the views. We saw lots of wildlife on the way up the mountain, including elk and bison. Great place to visit when it’s warmer.

The views from Lookout Mountain are amazing! Worth the drive to the top. You get a great view of the mountains and can also see Golden and even downtown Denver on a clear day. Our driver on the Coors tour recommended it and I'm glad...More

It takes about 15 minutes to travel to the top from Golden below. Many travel on foot or bike so be very careful of both. The view on a clear day is amazing as well as Buffalo Bill's museum.

A wonderful stop with wonderful views, especially the one with distant downtown Denver in the backdrop. If you're up for a pleasant drive along the Lariat Loop Road don't forget to check out the views of Lookout Mt.

An incredible view. Well manicured grounds, ample parking and a breathtaking look at the mountains and surrounding area merit a visit, whether you're in Golden or out for the day in the Denver metro area. Recommended.

My husband & I drove the scenic loop up to Lookout Mountain and stopped at a few scenic sites for photos and some generally awe inspiring views!!! Gorgeous! But not for the faint of heart of driving up twisting mountain roads isn’t your thing.

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.
