On this 40-mile route you can retrace the motoring adventures of the early days of the automobile, 1900-1920, and still experience the thrill of foothills touring. Colorado’s first gateways to the mountains still have sharp curves, winding roads, spectacular views, and waysides.  A favorite for more than 90 years, the Lariat Loop Scenic & Historic Byway will introduce you to more than 150 million years of Colorado history and prehistory.

Discover the Lookout Mountain Nature Center…where nature’s riches abound and where curiosity and exploration are always rewarded. Connect with nature at this 110 acre park. Inside experience exhibits that depict migrating birds and reveal secrets of the ponderosa pine forest. Visit the Discovery Corner and Observation Room. Outside stroll trails winding through forest and meadow, picnic beneath towering pine trees or join a naturalist-guided program.​
