We spent an afternoon on Lookout Mountain. The drive up is very scenic and we stopped at multiple lookout points. Watch for bikers especially early in the day. We stopped at the Buffalo Bill Museum at the top which is worth seeing. Also, check out...More

I would go back there in a heartbeat just for the views alone !!! And the cafe has pretty good food also. I took about 100 pics up there and I've looked through them a dozen times, and none of them captures what it really...More

The trip up from Golden was great for me. My wife wasn’t too happy with the tight switchbacks and many bike riders. The top is worth it if you like a good view.

My friend and I had some time to kill so we drove up and back. There are many good views and we saw a couple mule deer. If you have the time go to Mnt Evans, it’s a similar and a much better experience.

A mountain overlook point near Denver. Offers excellent views of Golden, Denver and the surrounding mountains. Be mindful of bikers sharing the road when driving up and back down.

After eating in Golden, my brother-in-law and I headed up Lookout Mountain on our motorcycles and really enjoyed it! The road has lots of nice twists and turns, but you do need to watch out for cyclists all along the route. At various points there...More

Going up Lookout Mountain is a few hours of fun. The views are amazing. I came up from the Golden side and it is steep with lots of switchbacks and several places to pull over for beautiful views and pictures. The other side, I-70 is...More

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.
