The park features several vantage points with panoramic views of the fall colors in Glenwood Canyon and the Roaring Fork Valley. The tram, the Lookout Grille, the Mine Wheel and viewing decks at the Giant Canyon Swing and above the restaurant are some of the best places for leaf peeping.
On Saturday, Oct. 22, from noon to 5 p.m., you can ride the tram and enjoy live Oktoberfest music free with the donation of a canned food item for the Lift-Up food bank. Local band Alpine Echo features Bill Rill on drums and vocals; John Pataky on accordion, drums and vocals; Joe Pologar on horns and vocals; and Gerhard Rill on strings, keyboards, accordion, horns, drums, bells, and vocals.
The Lookout Grille will serve fall favorites all month, including bratwursts and sauerkraut, seasonal beers and spiked apple cider. The popular Bloody Mary Bar will be open as well. It’s stocked with dozens of garnishes so that you can spice up your drink however you choose.
During October, the park is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. It will be closed Halloween.
