Lookout Mountain Park, along with Buffalo Bill Cody's Burial location at Lookout Mountain provide great views of Denver, Golden, and surrounding areas - especially on clearer days. Many days are fairly clear, but Denver is not as visible as others. Close by city and worth trip up just to look, take photo's, and or cool off.

Our first visit to RMNP and loved it. It snowed during the night and we were limited on how far into the park we could go. It was well worth the amount of time we were allowed. It snowed during the night and roads were slick. Can't wait to return in the summer.

Lookout mountains and The Red Rocks were beautiful, easy to find and the view was very romantic. Gets dark really early so travel early in the day for better a view

We took a half-day tour with the Grayline. They took us to Buffalo Bills grave, Red Rocks visitor center. Nice driver who told us a lot, but not worth the money.

Denver, many, many years ago, had the wisdom to buy park land outside the city limits. It's great to have these treasures saved for us and so nearby. That being said, if you are a tourist, you might choose more dramatic and famous parks to visit. Anyway, hikes are not too far away from city dwellers who need a break.... More

The Colorado mountains are spectacular. There are lots of cool trains and gorgeous sights. Completely worth is.

We took a ten-hour coach tour and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Spectacular sights, interesting commentary, and we saw quite a bit of the local wildlife including an Osprey. Loved it!
