Fodor's Review

The world's highest cog train departs from Manitou and follows a frolicking stream up a steep canyon, through stands of quaking aspen and towering lodgepole pines, before reaching the timberline, where you can see far into the plains until arriving at the 14,115-foot summit. Advance reservations are recommended in summer and on weekends, as this popular attraction sells out trips regularly.
