Our pick for one of the best mountain views, closest to the city, Lost Gulch Overlook is a popular spot for engagement photos. When the University of Colorado is in school, this spot will be a bit crowded. During the summer months or school breaks, you might have a better chance at squeezing in some real estate on top of the rock formations. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the actual overlook, which gives you epic views of Longs Peak.
The Flagstaff Road is a bit windy, but an adventure in itself. At the bottom, you’ll find Chautauqua Park, which is another great location for your engagement session.
