Lookout Mountain

The best way to get to the top of Lookout Mountain is to grind up the Chimney Gulch Trail. The trail zigzags through Windy Saddle Park, overlooking the city of Golden. The aptly named park is a favorite launch point for paragliders and hang gliders. Chimney Gulch’s technical single-track trail travels through grassy prairie, pine forests, and over creeks. As you slog your way to the top of the mountain, with an average grade of 10%, keep your head up so you can watch out for the mountain bikers you will surely encounter.
