Guests: Max Guests – 40

Location: Garden of the Gods
Garden of the Gods is one of the main attractions in the city of Colorado Springs, as well as for the entire state of Colorado. Its natural beauty is one of a kind and has attracted the attention of artists and photographers. The Garden of the Gods’ signature red rocks and its various other hogbacks were created during a geological upheaval along a natural fault line millions of years ago. Since then, the Garden of the Gods has attracted Native Americans and other travelers thanks to its striking beauty, wildlife, plant life, and natural shelters the formations create. Find yourself mesmerized by the vast rocks that tower above you as you are ushered through the park by our seasoned and knowledgeable guides. There are several options for hiking in the Garden of the Gods. There are many paved trails that meander through the natural rock formations in the central part of the park. There are also a number of soft surface trails branching out from the central garden that lead you to hidden gems and breath-taking views. Whatever path you choose, a hike through Garden of the Gods will leave you inspired.

The Cog has been climbing Pikes Peak since 1891. We are proud to be one of the most unique experiences in the country. Recognized as the world’s highest cog railroad, The Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway is an important part of the heritage of the Western United States. Taking this journey is like walking the footsteps of history, and now the adventure is even more iconic and inspiring. Pikes Peak, known as America’s Mountain, is the star attraction, but the journey along the way is full of show-stopping moments. You will never forget this 3.5 hour round trip journey and your first glimpse of the Summit. You’ve reached the top, now what? Some have described the Pikes Peak summit as the “gateway to heaven.” Pause, inhale, look around and take it all in. Both the Collegiate and Sangre de Cristo mountain ranges catch your gaze as well as the mining town of Cripple Creek and on a clear day you may even see the skyscrapers of Denver. Explore the newly constructed re-designed Pikes Peak Visitor Center and learn about the mountain’s history while taking in more stunning views. Looking for even more adventure on your trip back down the mountain? Instead of riding the train, you may feel inspired to hike down the mountain on the 13-mile Barr Trail or take a ride via bike along the twisting Pikes Peak Highway and see Colorado like never before. This is your adventure, it’s what you make it.

The Broadmoor's East Course is known for its wide, tree-lined fairways and expansive greens. With its challenging terrain and amazing mountain vistas, The East Course is ranked among the best golf courses in the country. Since the large trees can alter your shots and the putting greens difficult to read, the best tip we can offer for those taking on this open course is to remember that putts break away from the mountains.
