If you have an hour or two and the weather is clear take the ride up lookout. Great views looking in various directions. Numerous pull outs and large parking lot at the Buffalo Bill Museum.

We enjoyed driving here. The road between the mountain and Golden has a lot of twists and turns, although it's not the scariest mountain road I've ever traveled. There are several hiking trails. The view of the surrounding area is great.

Nice drive up Lariat Loop road. Great views of the urban areas. If you go over to the area just west of the viewpoint parking lot there are some mountain views.

It is an easy drive up to Lookout Mountain and the views are quite pretty. We took a short, couple hours, hike on a beautiful day. The trail went up and down hills was fairly easy and not too crowded. The views were wonderful! Welcome...More

Great place for a nice trail walk. Went up from a lookout parking spot up to main park where Buffalo Bill grave is took about 1 hour for round trip.
