In the Front Range foothills looming over Golden, CO is Lookout Mountain (elevation 7,377ft), used historically by Ute Indians as a lookout point for the area. One of the central attractions of the area is the grave of Buffalo Bill and nearby museum, but there is also a small network of hiking trails for those looking for some short walks through the forested hills in the area. Spectacular views of the city of Denver, CO and the plains to the east await visitors to this area.
