Went "late" for a Saturday morning but managed to get "the" one parking spot. (There is an overflow area just north). There's no shade so early morning would be best. Nice to have such great, 360* views, so close the city and there are many more miles of trail to explore while you're up there. The initial ascent was a lung-burner and, yes, the rattlers are out .

Wildflowers were starting to bloom. If you are hiking on the weekend, get at the trail head by 7:30ish because it gets busy quick.

Great trail! Some great mountains peaking out on the west side of juniper loop!! Easy to get to from Denver. Took us 2 hours with a couple of short breaks. “Waterfall” is close to the beginning of the trail and was running quite dry.

Great hike, starts off with a 0.7 mile incline then pretty flat. A few bikers but not too bad. In the beginning with the incline you share the road with people but at the top or splits to three trails and not busy. Easy parking, would recommend.

This was a moderate trail indeed. If you are looking for something to make you break a sweat, but not go overboard, this is a wonderful hike.

Beautiful open space park with lots of trail options depending on how far you want to hike. Dog-friendly with gorgeous wildflowers and views out over Golden. A nice mix of tree-lined pine forest and open trails that get lots of sun. Plenty of parking available at the trailhead and along the road. Only complaint is the number of mountain bikers on the way down who were going fast and were hard to hear coming. A great family-friendly mellow hike - would come back here!

Challenging—narrow and rocky trail at Lookout Mtn. Sweeping overlooks and lots of wildflowers. Fields of rocks were a challenge. Son liked this one more than others we’ve tried so far. Could have opted for the intermediate Lookout Mtn trail but this one was less crowded—understandably. Only made it 3.5 miles total. Would go again from other trailhead.

Pretty easy to be distant on this trail! No shade so bring water for the dogs! Also lots of wildlife. saw a coyote so definitely keep dogs on leash

We did this trail a little later in the morning 10:00. There was no shade which made it somewhat difficult. The top had some great rock structures and pretty views of the city.

Decent trail, huge parking lot. The trail is fairly smooth with gravel like conditions. No water crossings and several opportunities for shade.

Really nice trail that was easy to navigate. Parking lot was really (really) crowded but the trail itself didn’t seem to bad. Both bikers and hikers do watch out for one another. Great time of year as the wildflowers smelled amazing. Mostly sunny/exposed but there was a nice shady section that felt about five degrees cooler. Would absolutely do again!

I would recommend this if you are 5 years old or have little ones of your own. Glad I got the chance to see this.

This trail was just gorgeous and perfect. Enough of a few but burners and scrambles to make it interesting and fun as well as spectacular views throughout. Amazing vistas at Panorama Point, gorgeous valley views at Frazier Meadow and over to Estes/Lyons. A good portion was nice rolling hills for a moderate hike. We had perfect little sun showers throughout. Most people socially distanced and pulled up masks when passing.

Not a bad hike, but it should be done super early in the morning. There is a rattlesnake advisory in the trail, so use caution. My girls (3 & 5) did have a snake cross our path on the Lichen Peak trail at the top. Not bad views. There's road noise the whole way up the steep path. I think this is a better trail for early spring and fall, not summer.

No discernible hiking path to the peak. Nice enough hiking on the Jeep trail. Only place in CO I’ve seen trash...jeepers need to pick up after themselves!!

If you like stopping your activity to have conversations with Colorado people...this is your trail! If you like to run in peace, avoid or get here before 7.

I liked this trail but did not share the rave reviews from some of the other recent reviewers. The first 4 miles I heard road noise every few minutes and toward the end there was a bit of a scramble down which was very difficult with a dog. But overall, a solid day on a fairly quiet trail.

Aggressive incline to start. Nice views and lots of trail options at the top. Great opportunity for exercise

Great hike today. Not crowded at all. Got to parking about 10 and a few spots left. Completely dry. Not windy. Perfect! (Two poop bags)

We tacked on about .6 more miles by taking an alternative route down from the mountain

Great view! Second half is along road, but recommend taking trail loop within Lookout Mnt Area

nice fun easy trail!
