  • Spent the day driving along the Arkansas River from Leadville to Johnson City and stopped at this scenic overlook for a picnic lunch. Unbelievable day with breathtaking scenery.

  • Great little stop, with shaded overlook!
  • Beautiful view of the Collegiate Peaks. Clean (park) bathrooms and picnic tables with grills. Great place to pull off and take a break. Kids enjoyed it, too.
