My sister took me to Rock Ledge Ranch in Colorado Springs while I was visiting from Texas. No activities were in progress, but it was a relaxing place to have a leisurely stroll and watch reflections from the pond on the trees lining the water.

Beautiful place to visit, with incredibly well preserved house and great staff in character. Loved how much they had to say about the awesome antiques, and it was really cool that you were able to touch things and see them using appliances.

We get into the area early in the morning and thoroughly enjoy the fresh morning air and peacefulness of the area. Have seen lots of wildlife from a bear to a bobcat! Always see deer and occasionally a coyote! Love the place!

Rock Ledge Ranch is just across from Garden of the Gods visitor center. Very inexpensive ($5 adults, $4). Colorado Springs history in outdoor interactive settings...Indians, early settlers, blacksmith, farming, houses with individuals in character and dressed in costume. Lots of interesting information. Places to picnic.

I did not see any wheel chairs there. Much of it is outside on dirt walkways due to it being a historical site.

It is a city park that you can access any day (via the road on the south side or trails at Garden of the Gods.) The buildings are only open on particular days in which you must pay or be a member to be on grounds.
