While visiting Golden in September, 2019, my husband and I drove to the top of Lookout Mountain. The drive up is somewhat exciting and beautiful and the view at the top is very spectacular.

We went up as part of a tour, and am glad we weren't driving. Lots of bicyclists make their ways to the top, and back down. I'm not sure I could handle the curves as well as the cyclists. Once you're at the top, there's...More

Steep drive, and watch out for bikers, but worth the white knuckle drive up. Multiple look out points along the way.

The drive up the mountain is a bit steep but views are well worth the drive! It’s just outside of Golden Colorado and has multiple look out points and an overall beautiful drive!!

The mountains can be a bit scary to drive on, but take a deep breath, drive slow, bring water (have always found toilets) and it is worth the drive! Amazing views.

Don't miss Buffalo Bill's grave and the nice view from the area and the (large) gift shop. Parking is a bit limited

We happened across this route traveling in the Golden area. We didn't have time to do much hiking around but put it in our bucket list of places to revisit with lots more time. Golden was such a cute town with lots of interesting shops...More

We got rained out of hiking up St. Mary’s Glacier so ended up here in Golden on an impromptu change-of-plans excursion. We hiked several miles on a couple of the trails. Make sure to go to the main Lookout area near a welcome center. If...More
