One of the coolest (literally) of the Colorado Springs hiking trails, and one of the best-kept secrets. This is a unique 2-mile hike near Glen Eyrie that meanders through a steep canyon, gains 400 feet of vertical, and ends up at the punch bowls-- five granite bowls filled with mountain water. Excellent hike for a hot summer day. Jump into the bowls and go for a swim. I must go find this!
SkyWire is the only ride of its type in the world. Your adventure begins with a journey through bush trails to the terminal site that offers magnificent views over Tasman Bay. Adventure seekers are strapped onto a high tech 4 chair carriage, which is launched 1.6km over and back, high above a native forest valley. Reach speeds of up to 100kph (60mph) on an endless cable, dropping 150m like an extreme high speed ski lift
