The road up to the Will Rogers Memorial is cut through rock and climbs a hearty mountain. It is worth the trip to learn some history of this famous humorist and to see the historical murals on the main level.

Easy road to travel up the mountain from the zoo. The views of Colorado Springs and beyond are beautiful. The information our host, George, shared with us was very interesting.

This attraction is included with admission to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and is well worth the mile and a half drive up the switch back filled road. Wonderful vistas and a glimpse into teh history of the area.

We visited in conjunction with a zoo visit. The drive up was scary because I am scared of heights. The shrine is breathtaking though. I really have no words. We could see for miles and miles! There are a LOT of stairs though. It was...More

We traveled up here after our zoo trip. Although we did not stop in the visitor center, we did go all the way up the tower. The view will make your knees wobble and give you a greater appreciation of what it must be like...More
