Windy Saddle Park
Windy Saddle Park is another name for Lookout Mountain. The park has many attractions, for many different types of recreation. Hordes of road bikers slog up and race down Lookout Mountain Road, Paragliders take off from the top and land down by Hwy 6, and there are many wonderful options for hiking. The Chimney Gulch trail is the biggie, but the Beaver Brook Trail starts at the Windy Saddle and ends 8 miles later in Genesee Park (Denver Mountain Parks). Also at the top of Lookout Mountain you can find the Lookout Mountain Nature Center (which has it's own short nature trails) and the Beautiful Boettcher Mansion.
