Fall Getaway in the Pikes Peak Region

Aspen trees in rich shades of gold mixed with the rich evergreens and rusty scrub oaks against brilliant blue skies offer fall folliage viewing in the Pikes Peak Region now through the first part of October.There is no better way to enjoy the beautiful Colorado fall than being outdoors. The Pikes Peak region offers numerous day hikes in the area that can be enjoyed while viewing the spectacular colors . An outdoor adventure walking new trails  combined with a stay at any one of our member inns makes for a great leisure fall weekend.  Innkeepers will have maps or directions to the trails.The beauty of the local canyon trails are some of the best trails in the area; Williams Canyon in Manitou Springs, Waldo Canyon up Ute Pass outside Cascade, and Cheyenne Canyon in Colorado Springs. Garden of the Gods offers many trails around the park that are wonderful to hike and not that traveled.Wander and discover the many waterfalls of the Pikes Peak Region, Helen Hunt Falls, Catamount Falls, or Mother's Rest Falls.  Plan to shop or dine at any one of our unique galleries or fantastic restaurants. Live entertainment in the evenings is offered in many establishments.
