Colorado Springs Updates

Updated Week of 7/26/15

Here is an update on various temporary closures, re-openings and newly announced events:

What is Open

  • Red Rock Canyon Open Space has reopened after some trail damage from heavy rains.
  • The Manitou Incline is now open after repairs to the middle section. The 1-mile, 2,000-ft. vertical rise, 2,700+ step trail never looked so good! Remember that parking in the lot is limited to about 35 vehicles and parking along Ruxton Avenue is pay parking only - read the street signs carefully so you don't get a parking ticket. Park for free behind the Tajine Alami Moroccan Restaurant at 10 Old Man's Trail  and take the free shuttle to the trailhead.
  • Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center celebrated its 20th anniversary on May 15, 2015 with new interactive museum-quality exhibits and a new short time-travel film that answers the question, "How Did Those Red Rocks Get There?". The facility is open 8 a.m. - 7: p.m. daily in the summer months.
  • The Royal Gorge Bridge & Park is now open with a new visitor center, aerial tram and zipline - more improvements are in progress.  Visit for the most up-to-date information.
