Our FAVORITE nearby Mexican restaurant. You kind of have to go looking for it: it is off the main drag, up the "hill" in Manitou Springs. But it is worth! Beautiful area, nice patio. Excellent food and margaritas.

Hiking & Mountain Biking Trails
The Colorado Springs area has hundreds of miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking. Check online or trail apps to get details for most. We have some paper trail maps and guides available to borrow in the AirBnb space. Trails apps I recommend are COTREX (Colorado Trail Explorer) and AllTrails. Because of limited cell phone connectivity in many areas, I recommend downloading the maps onto your device before your outing. Some areas with visitor centers have printed trail maps available. Specific detailed trail maps for more remote, backcountry areas can be purchased at outdoor gear retailers like Mountain Chalet here in town. Be Safe! it is important to have appropriate footwear and gear including lots of water. Be aware of the dangers of trail use including injury due to falls, altitude sickness, dehydration, lightening and other bad weather and wildlife.
Many miles of great options. My "go-to" close-by place to hike. The contemplative trail is a great hike for kids, winds through a lot of the red rocks for kids to explore and climb on.

This trail is beautiful even if you don't go very far up. You can take this trail to hike the entire way up to the summit of Pikes Peak. You can camp halfway up at Barr camp. Or, you can just get a few miles in going partially up and down.
