With an altitude of 14,115 feet above sea level, Pikes Peak forms a magnificent visual backdrop for Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, Fort Carson, the U.S. Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods, Cripple Creek and many other regional cities and attractions.

Manitou Springs

Nestled between Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak, historic Manitou Springs is centrally-located to the unique attractions of the Pikes Peak Region.

A road-trippers paradise, Manitou sits just below Highway 24. Head east and you’re to the interstate in under 15 minutes. Head west and you’re entering the gateway to the Rocky Mountains.

Manitou is the perfect place to spread out in the great outdoors, then find a cozy spot to settle in with your friends or family. In fact, Goldilocks would love Manitou Springs: not too big and not too small—just right.

Maybe it’s the mountain air, or the natural mineral springs. It might be the open-air dining or that feeling of being nestled just at the foot of Pikes Peak. Whatever it is, we know that nature rejuvenates us, now more than ever.

For centuries people have been making trips here to taste the magic and mystery of Manitou’s healing waters. Come and experience the magic for yourself.
