It's a long drive with beatufil sights on the way.

Have ready your camera and stop often to take great pictures.

We visited in the summer and there was no snow around. With it, it must be prettier still.

Coming down off Trout Creek Pass on US-285 this overlook is situated on knoll with the best view of the entire Collegiate Range. You art still far enough above the valley floor, and far enough away from the beaks to full appreciate the size and grandeur of these peaks.

Plenty of sheltered picnic tables, so bring lunch or dinner (watch the sunset behind the parks).

You need to understand what you are looking at in this area. This overloop has signs so you can learn the peaks, as well as great picnic areas and views.

I visited the Scenic Overlook early in the morning. There was a little chill in the air, it was quiet, and the view was spectacular! I would strongly suggest visiting the Overlook to get a breathtaking view of the Collegiate Peaks! The area was very clean with several covered picnic areas. Great photo opportunity!
