Colorado Springs Sports & Activities

A number of activities are available within an hour or two of Colorado Springs, including hot-air ballooning, white-water rafting, and all-access Jeep tours. Riding in a Jeep is one way to view the backcountry; a horseback ride on trails through meadows and along mountainsides is another.

Some of the best choices for hiking in this region are the Barr Trail, which heads up Pikes Peak (and is for hardy, well-conditioned hikers), and the array of trails in North Cheyenne CaƱon Park.
