If you’re looking for the most haunted places and ghost towns in Colorado, there are plenty of ghoulish stops within the Pikes Peak Region from Colorado Springs to nearby Manitou Springs, Cripple Creek and Canon City.
These sites offer eerie beyond-the-grave energy. With a history of tuberculosis and the debauchery of the Pikes Peak or Bust Gold Rush residents, spirits are lurking around many corners. There’s no lack of opportunity to bump into something or someone, that’s not of this world with a few of these haunted places in Colorado.
A city with a great history also comes with a deep past. Dark tunnels and Native American lore lend themselves to some unsettling spots around the town.
This charming mountain town just west of Colorado Springs was a mecca for Native American worship as well as pagan ritual back in the 70s. Founded on health and wellness after a national bout of tuberculosis, there are many spirits of the people who fell victim to the disease while living or being treated here. Manitou Springs is a stunning and small community that's rich in history, legends and ghost stories. It's no wonder people travel from all over for paranormal experiences.
This American ghost town was the site of the Pikes Peak or Bust gold rush. Settlers sold everything they owned and made the trip to this small town seeking their fortunes. Some struck it rich while others weren't so lucky. The eery feeling in the old jail and frequent sightings in old hotels help tell the tale.
This small town just south of Colorado Springs is home to multiple prisons, as well as the Museum of Colorado Prisons. The spooky spot has a jaded past as does the unmarked cemetery nearby.
