The Lariat Loop Scenic Byway is Colorado's only urban byway; closer to a metro area than any other byway. This area is booming with cultural, natural, and historical landmarks. The byway is filled with museums, good entertainment, tantalizing cuisine, and plenty of opportunities for various activities.

The Lariat Loop Byway provides access to many attractions. Lookout Mountain is one of the larger foothills overlooking Golden and Denver in the far distance and Buffalo Bill's grave is located just a little ways down the road.

The byway also travels by Red Rocks Amphitheatre. This area has been referred to as "Garden of the Angels." The park is filled with huge red rocks combined with a 10,000-seat theater and orchestra pit, where performers such as Blues Traveler, Bill Cosby, Dave Matthews Band, and many, many others have graced the stage.

Evergreen Lake is a popular area for recreation. Boating, year-round fishing, and ice-skating are popular activities on the lake. Outdoor concerts are also held on the edge of the lake frequently. The northwest portion of the lake features bridges and boardwalks through the wetlands.

Location: Start on Hwy 6 in Golden, travel up Lookout Mountain Road and then southwest down to I-70 at Genesse. The loop continues on Hwy 74 through Evergreen to Morrison and then back onto Hwy 6 to Golden.
