[ARCHIVED] Open House: Lookout Mountain Road Proposed Nighttime Vehicle Access Management

Lookout Mountain Road Near Windy Saddle Park Trailhead

December 13, 2023 6:00–7:30 p.m.

Lookout Mountain Road, between the Chimney Gulch Trail pullout and Lookout Mountain Park, travels through Jeffco Open Space and Denver Mountain Parklands. Both agencies post park hours as closed from one hour after sunset to one hour before sunrise. All trailheads and pullouts are posted no parking for closed hours. Mobility data, law enforcement contacts, trash, and significant property damage affirm that the posted park hours are not being followed and the area, in fact, is busier at midnight than it is at 10 a.m. on weekends. This activity presents a safety hazard and threatens Lookout Mountain’s significant natural and cultural resources.  

A broad coalition of stakeholders support the installation of automatic closure gates that limit vehicle access during park closure hours and significant snow events.
