Lookout Mountain and foothills to the north and south are at the eastern edge of the Colorado Front Range of the Southern Rocky Mountains. This area is subject to weather conditions that may be rare in other parts of the country. In addition to the usual cycling hazards of lightning, hail, and rain, this area is subject to frequent high winds, rapid storm buildup, snow, ice, and low fog which make cycling hazardous. The weather may also create beautiful cycling conditions unlikely to be encountered elsewhere. Unfortunately, many of these conditions make cycling unsafe. At these times, it is safer to enjoy Lookout’s beauty on foot when the weather conditions can be enjoyed without risking serious injury or death.
