Lookout Mountain Lookout
The trail is very steep and gains elevation very rapidly, and is usually snow-free by late July. The trail takes hikers 3.5 miles through timber before breaking into high, steep open meadows and then another 1.2 miles climbs through meadows to the lookout. This destination offers spectacular views of Teebone Ridge, Hidden Lake Peak and Eldorado Peak. The lookout was built in 1962, replacing the structure built in 1929.
Warning: To prevent the catwalks from collapsing, limit of two people per side.
