We did a strenous 6 mile hike. We started at 7000 ft and it went up to about 8000 ft. The first half was a strenous mile or two up. If you are not accustomed to the altitude, you might try a less strenous hike. However, the views along the way are well worth the trip and on the day... More

It is such a place to take in the nature. It is for those people who are seeking active lifestyle. Just be careful if it is your first time. Altitude is no joke up here. It can you dizzy and not feeling well!

Great at the outside with the trails and with giraffes and the view, a good place to be for the nature lover. And great of the inside - no I don't have enough clearance to get in - but is where NORAD is place and is also the place where it started with the Santa phone line

It's nice and has scenic views but pets are not allowed on the trails at all. The trails are kept up and it's quiet.

What an incredible opportunity to feed giraffes and catch kisses from gorillas--this is a lovely mountain zoo with some beautiful animals. Try to find a coupon through your hotel to save you a few dollars after the entry fee.

Unless you have the right kind of ID and security clearance, Cheyenne Mountain is best viewed from down below. That's because NORAD is housed inside and visitors attempting to reach the steel doors on their own are likely to find their way blocked by armed military personnel. However, a model of what's inside can easily be viewed at the Peterson... More

Cheyenne Mountain, a 9,570-foot, triple-peaked mountain that dominates the skyline southwest of downtown Colorado Springs in Colorado's El Paso County, is a massive tourist attraction all onto itself. It serves as a host for military, communications, recreational and residential functions. In the 1950s, during the Cold War, it was the underground operations center for the North American Aerospace Defense Command... More
