This is a must see place if you get to town go if you have the ability to get up there and see it. Well worth the trip.

Love the area. Camped up there but it's dangerous. People driving like maniacs on one lane dirt roads like there's no tomorrow. There are some "dregs" up those areas shooting all over the place. Fights have happened and shootings. Stay in the park.

This zoo, built on the side of Cheyenne Mountain, is truly remarkable. A showcase of what a humane exhibition of a wide variety of animals is all about, these animals are presented as much as possible in their native habitats, given as much space as...More

I used to live across from this beautiful mountain. I was raised here and have never tired at looking at the home of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and Will Rogers Shrine. Highly recommend seeing it.
