on Lookout Mountain Trail

Total waste of time unless just going to exercise. Little to no views on entire trail. Trail shared between hikers (many with dogs) and bicyclists. Trail not wide enough for bicycles and walkers - have to smoosh self against rock wall to let bicycles though. Very rocky trail, uphill, moderate hike. Top of hill has mansion and visitor center. Halfway up the trail splits and you can go to see Buffalo Bill grave and souvenir shop. No views from there either. Viewers at Buffalo Bill grave to lookout at city of Denver are behind cell phone tower, electric cable supports and pine trees. Overall - pretty lame.

Great for a day hike. Good views! Trail hard to follow though, rather confusing.

8-1-04; 10-5-03; There's a couple routes -- connects with beaver brook creek trail. Parts of trail are steady incline-- fabulous bench with view.

It was a great first hike since we moved here, also brought my 5 yr old and she's finished it :)

I've done less hiking than chillin and enjoying the view. Sunsets at the Peak by Colorow Mountain Park are well worth watching for an hour or two.

Loved all the trees & shade! Peaceful view at the top! Loved it! FYI are porta pottys before the hike!

Fun trail with a decent climb. A lot of mountain bikers but everyone is very respectful and no issues. A lot of birds and wildflowers to enjoy on the hike.

WATCH OUT FOR RATTLESNAKES!!! Just uploaded photos of rattlesnake in 1st boulder field. Right on main path through boulders! We would NOT have seen it but another hiker saw it and stopped to take pictures. We warned several people with dogs. The snake was hidden in the rocks at calf height! WATCH OUT!

This is an awesome trail though. Most of the first 4 miles out is tree covered so it's cool on a hot day. Great views!

This hike was beautiful. We went at 10 on a Tuesday and it was very busy with little parking, so keep in mind that this is a popular trail with lots of users.

Very nice & close to town.

great trail fun and somewhat exciting

The family and I did this hike last weekend though we didn't start at this point due to the parking lot being full. So we stared further up the trail in the parking lot where Lookout Mountain Trail and Beaver Brook Trail meet. Not as long as a hike that I would have liked but still was a good day with some spectacular views. There were hikers, runners, and cyclists on the trail but everyone were very courteous to one another.

Old school...

A couple friends, my 9 & 5 year old hiked this trail no problem. Was muddy with snow. Kids enjoyed throwing a few snowballs along the way. Mostly wooded with nice occasional look out points.

Trail was clear and dry with only a few wet spots. Even saw some deer!

I'm late posting... we hiked mid February when it was still icy in many areas, the trail was still pretty busy considering. Beautiful views, some questionable land areas, easy for possible trips, slips or tumbles... quick and family friendly...

Good family trail for a quickie
