Nice visitor center and pretty views

The visitor center was small but nice. Views were nice. The mansion was closed for touring on a Saturday.

It is so Beautiful here you have to see it! The view is spectacular. Take your camera especially when the Aspen leaves are in full change.

A stop on my roadtrip. Beautiful views. A must see for any Buffalo Bill enthusiast. I know why William Cody fell in love with the area.

Short, but sweet drive. Enjoy. Worth while if you're close by to Golden. Buffalo near by, so you may see them too. Not really worth driving to the lot to see them.

We went up the mountain for a short time, because our time in Denver was very limited. It was a beautiful drive. We didn't see any wildlife this time. We did stop at a park and walked a little and took some great pictures. We will definitely go back on our next trip.

I frequent this area on my road and mountain bikes. The road is typically not too busy during the day mid-week. It's a good uphill grind that many local roadies do intervals and time trials on. Don't be intimidated because a lot of time there's no one out there and everyone who is is friendly. For the mountain bike side... More

Outstanding, quaint friendly and beautiful.. Highly recommended. Golden is close to the light rail. This is a great choice to get downtown without any hazel. The old Am track station has been remodeled and is a perfect place to start your Denver exploration
