The Will Rogers Shrine is included in your admission to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Picturesque views from the top! Several picnic tables at the top to enjoy a picnic lunch. Great tribute to a great man!

We were told it's a full day commitment to do the zoo and the shrine. From others we heard it was nice to visit however at the end of our 10 days here we didn't have time to do the zoo.

This is definitely worth the walk to the lower portions for the overlook and to see the interesting details inside. Walking to the top is not necessary to enjoy the shrine unless you just want to climb some stairs.

The Memorial is set back from the rest of Lookout Mt. It's a shame the local authorities placed so many microwave, cell phone towers, and even high tension electrical transmission lines right in front of the memorial. But worth the view on the other side....More
