This attraction is included with admission to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and is well worth the mile and a half drive up the switch back filled road. Wonderful vistas and a glimpse into teh history of the area.

This is off the beaten path and you have to be careful when you drive up to the top but it is so worth it! Take change (quarters) so you can use their periscope, breath taking views

We went through the zoo in order to get here. Some great views up and down the winding road that leads to the top of the mountain. Once you get to the top, there's a nice Welcome Center and then it's a short climb/walk to...More
