This center has a fair amount of interactive exhibits plus some easy hiking trails that make for a good educational and exercise stop. Good staff. From here you can take a scenic drive to Cripple Creek.

Pikes Peak - America's Mountain

Welcome to Pikes Peak - America's Mountain! The Pikes Peak Highway entrance is conveniently located 15 minutes west of Colorado Springs on Highway 24.

The safe, scenic highway provides you the opportunity to enjoy Pikes Peak at your leisure. From the gateway at an elevation of 7,400 feet, you'll encounter some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world as you wind your way through an alpine wonderland of scenic beauty, mountain reservoirs, beyond timberline, overtaking the clouds...All along the way to the 14,115 foot summit of America's most famous mountain.

Took that drive up the mountain and please allow me to say that its beautiful, drive careful and always use a 4x4 vehicle, saw a few cars trying to comedown the mountain hauling rear end and almost fell out the side of the mountain. The summit it’s very high so be careful going up specially if you can’t handle the altitude, but it’s worth it buy one of those oxygen bottle they sell. Go up it’s Gorgeous.

Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center

Reviewed By Gordon S - Phoenix, Arizona

A big fan of the wolves, coyotes, and the foxes. Our guide was OUTSTANDING and this is no Fish tail. This place is more like a zoo and a little bit too commercialized. The staff is clearly passionate about the animals and very well educated. The gift shop is very well stocked. The bathrooms are outside, but well maintained. Easy to find and not far from Colorado Springs. Colorado is lucky to have this and other great wolf facilities. .

Mueller State Park

A scenic park.

Reviewed By Texasmom04 - Arlington, Texas

Wonderful hiking trails. We were there on a Sunday afternoon at the height of the summer season and yet had the short hiking trail totally to ourselves. It was posted that the campsites were full but it didn't feel overly crowded. We loved visiting this park and wish we'd had time to camp here. Very well laid out park with beautiful facilities.

They are the only Colorado state park with fully furnished luxury type cabins you can reserve. There are three cabins and they said they generally book up six months ahead.

I am a dinosaur fanatic and I absolutely loved this place. We were fortunate enough to be the only people on the early morning tour and got in-depth information on all of the exhibits. I absolutely loved it. Greg, Lindy and Crystal were wonderful guides and answered all of my questions about all aspects of dinosaurs. We even got to see where the fossils and casts are prepared, which I thought was a fantastic addition to what was already a really fun tour. I've never seen so many dinosaurs in one place, and was just blown away by the quality of the displays. I hope I get to come back some day!

Horsethief Falls

Reviewed By Becki T - Monument, Colorado

The hike begins right after old RR tunnel. Switchback and a little bit of a steep ascent to Ring the Peak Trail. Proceed straight alongside the creek for the most part and you arrive at Horsethief Falls rather quickly. Lots of rocks, that could be slippery and gravel, so watch your step and take your time. The terrain although not difficult because it is loose gravel with some pine leaves and spray from the falls, make it a bit slippery. Take advantage of the slow hike and enjoy...nice little getaway. If you are up for it, include Pancake Rock a 2 mile trail that veers off of Horsethief ... great views that shouldn't be missed but can be done another day.

Paradox Beer Company

Reviewed By Gallio182 - Woodland Park

Great beers, good food, and an incredible view of Pikes Peak (the lessor viewed north side).
This is somewhat weather dependent. It's 90 degrees in Colorado Springs today, and 73 in Divide. Perfect, but don't expect this in February.
One small thing...they need to purchase a good meat slicer. They're about $300, and it would greatly improve the prosciutto on their meat platters.
Dog friendly outdoor area (again, check the forecast)
There's nothing like good sour beer at 9,000 feet. It's reminiscent of a pub at the top of a high alpine pass in Europe.

the office was on time, prepared for our party, and run efficiently. Cell service is challenging at the trail head, so make sure you have a couple of phones to use, but otherwise the operation went very well, and the morning was really great through Peak's National Park. Great trails with the most spectacular views.
