We saw wildlife and enjoyed the views. Gotta be careful as you share narrow roads with lots of curves with bicyclists, do not stop in the middle of a road!

Stunning. True majesty. Went to the ampatheater, which offers fabulous and breathtaking views of the plains and Boulder. Butterflies, birds, raptors, trees, mountains, and peace. Bring water and relax. A quick must do and see. Winding road is fun. Be careful of bikers.

We were traveling with 2 kids that weren't up for a hike, so we took the scenic drive up. Our rental van was struggling, but I'm glad we made it to the top. Great views from the lookout points.
