You can drive the Pikes Peak Toll Road Scenic Byway, ride the Pikes Peak Cog Railway, or get a seriously tough workout by hiking the Barr Trail out of Manitou Springs.

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.
