The trip to the park is beautiful, the only word I can use to describe it. The visitor's center has many great things for children to see, do and explore. It would not be a complete adventure unless you talk with the staff. Seldom have I seen people that are truly dedicated and enjoy teaching others of what they see... More

Follow the signs to the top on a windy and scenic road. This is a quick excursion if you are looking for something great that doesn't take too much time. We drove to the top, got out, looked around, took some pictures and got back in the car and drove down the mountain. They do have a shop up top... More

This was an amazing spot. Great views and plenty of spots to get photo opportunities. I recommend going a few more feet down the road to the museum next door for more viewpoints from that parking lot. The gates there close at 5pm though just an fyi.

Wonderful place for views from atop the mountains of both Golden and Denver in the distance. Also a great place for gifts, ice cream and fudge!

Lovely drive up and down the mountain. Something you can do that does not take a half day to enjoy. At the top there is a nice gift shop, a place to eat and for a fee the Wild Bill Cody Museum which was very interesting. His presumed grave is also at top of mountain. Nice views of Denver and...

Great hike with very rewarding views at the top. A lot of people biking but you'll have to be in top physical condition to bike it. Strenuous hike but very doable.

Begin your journey into the mountains by checking out this location. You have 360 degrees of amazing views. They even have a map that shows you the names of all the other mountains.....just remember looks and distance can be very deceiving.

The kids and I pulled off here for a place to stretch our legs and get some pictures. We loved the view. Would be a great place for a picnic!

For someone with a fear of heights this was a challenge driving up the mountain. Once we arrived the fear dissolved and the beauty of nature took over. It makes you wonder what it was like long before the roads and convenience of today. I can't imagine traveling this on horseback. Something to see as nature doesn't disappoint.
