Lookout Mountain (from Confluence Park)

One of Denver’s timeless rides: Start at Confluence Park, work your way through LoHi to 32nd Avenue, and head west to Golden. Pass the Colorado School of Mines; cross busy Highway 6; and then begin the epic Front Range climb up Lookout Mountain. At an average gradient of 5.5 percent, it’s not the hardest climb you’ll ever experience, but there are no false flats on this uphill (until the very end at least), so there’s nowhere to hide. (As featured in the May 2013 issue of 5280 Magazine.)

Starts in: Denver, CO, US
Distance: 37.2 mi
Elevation: +2730 / -2730 ft
