City of Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs, also known as Olympic City USA, is home to beautiful landscapes, miles of hiking trails, rich history, the United States Olympic Committee Headquarters, 21 National Olympic Governing Bodies, over 50 National Sport Organizations, the U.S. Olympic Training Center, The US Air Force Academy, and a thriving economy.
The City’s natural beauty draws visitors from across the country and the world. One of the most defining features is Pikes Peak, which inspired the patriotic song “America the Beautiful.” Among Colorado’s “14ers,” Pikes Peak reaches 14,115 feet above sea level and towers more than 8,000 feet above the City. You can drive, hike, bike or take the Broadmoor Pikes Peak Cog Railroad to the summit.
Colorado Springs is also home to The Manitou Incline, one of the most popular hiking trails in Colorado. With an elevation gain of approximately 2,000 feet in less than a mile, The Incline is no ordinary trail.
The towering rock formations that make up Garden of the Gods are easily accessible by car, bike, horseback, Segway or foot and are another “must see” for visitors and locals alike.
