  • One of the best scenic overlooks you'll ever see. It's amazing to stop here after climbing one of the 14ers as you can reference it's location on the map/sign at the overlook. Great perspective!  more »
  • This is THE place to stop to get great pictures of the Arkansas Valley and Collegiate Peaks. It is a day use area with picnic tables, restrooms (no running water). You should sign in and leave...  more »

  • This vantage point provides one of the most impressive views of a mountain range I have ever seen, and I've seen quite a few. Like the Grand Canyon, and most impressive features, pictures do not do it justice. There is a covered structure with interpretive signs containing information about the valley and pointing out which peaks you are looking at. The fee of $8.00 seems a little steep if all you want to do is see the view, rather than having a picnic or using the trails, but the view is amazing!
  • This is a really nice overlook to stop off at to take a break or stretch your legs. You'll find a beautiful panoramic view of the Collegiate Peaks, bathrooms, picnic tables and a large gazebo along with informational signs about the Collegiate Peaks.
