Visitors to the area can summit the 14,110-foot Pikes Peak — the inspiration for Katharine Lee Bates' "America the Beautiful" — by riding the Pikes Peak Cog Railway, braving the toll road or — for the hearty athlete — hiking the Barr Trail.

Closer to the base of the mountain, vacationers can enjoy excellent hiking and fishing at Rampart Range Reservoir. Historic Manitou Springs offers hikes in the surrounding forests or strolls through town to sample its namesake natural springs and browse its many shops and restaurants.

Follow Highway 24 out of the Colorado Springs area for even more high-altitude fun. The road, known as Ute Pass because it once served as an important route for the Ute Indians, is home to small towns like Green Mountain Falls and Cascade, which offer lush, tree-filled hikes to surrounding waterfalls. Families love the North Pole, a kid-friendly theme park featuring rides and entertaining shows with Christmas themes.

Farther up the road, Woodland Park and Chipita Park feature scenic hikes through the surrounding Pike National Forest. Woodland Park's Manitou Lake is great for anglers, while the town's Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center is a fun, exhibit-filled museum with hands-on activities for kids and adults alike.

Commercial air travel accommodations are handled by Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. Please contact your preferred travel agent or airline for flight arrangements.
