Nicknamed the city above the clouds, Woodland Park Colorado rests at the side of Pikes Peak at an elevation of 8465 feet. Bike paths and hiking trails wind throughout the region offering a serene get-away from a busy life. Stroll through a multitude of shops and cafes, see the stars at the Woodland Park Catamount Institute or visit the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center. For a real “mountain experience” you can rent a Colorado mountain cabin for the weekend and relish the beauty of the woodsy outdoors. To spend the day in a larger city, take the beautiful 18 mile drive to Colorado Springs.
