An unexpected plus included with our Zoo pass. We drove slowly up through the Zoo around the multiple curves to finally ascend the monument. Very impressive with remarkable views looking across the State nearly 150 miles on a clear day. Lots of stairs, but no...More

To get to the Will Rogers Shrine you will have to pay admission at the entrance of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. The drive up the mountain is spectacular and a little scary. The road is narrow and edges the side of the mountain. There is...More

We checked out early from Colorado Springs and paid a quick visit to the Cheyenne mountain zoo. We took the option of visiting the shrine. It is quiet a drive up to the shrine but the views are well worth it.
