Lariat Loop Scenic Byway
The LARIAT LOOP is a 40-mile route in the foothills west of Denver, Colorado. The Loop, a Colorado Scenic Byway and National Scenic Byway is the literal and metaphoric connection between the communities of Golden, Morrison, Lookout Mountain, and Evergreen and the natural and cultural elements that comprise our unique regional heritage. The Lariat Loop is a combination of two historic routes: the Lariat Trail Scenic Mountain Drive ascending Lookout Mountain and the Bear Creek Canyon Scenic Mountain Drive. In combination, these routes were part of just one of the "scenic circles" developed and promoted by Denver in 1915-1920s to help Coloradoans experience the mountains in proximity to the Denver Metropolitan area.
