Top of mountain park w/awesome views.. Great for picnicking. Reach from I-70 (easy ride) or W. Colfax (tightly winding 2-lane w/no shoulder & cyclists). Cool either way.

Lookout mountain is worth a visit if you are around Golden and Denver. There is also the Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum that are worth paying a visit as well. Very nice view from the place on a sunny day, You have a view over Denver and Golden.
