Woodland Park

To be named the "City Above the Clouds" in a state with as many high-elevation locations as Colorado, Woodland Park must be quite an interesting place to visit. The community's convenient location near Colorado Springs homes for sale, great outdoor attractions, quaint, scenic Main Street, and towering elevation of 8,500 feet all combine to make Woodland Park a wonderful place to spend a day. 

Woodland Park offers a small-town lifestyle and attractions that make it a special place to visit or call home. Of course, Woodland Park has some things that make it stand out from even the most popular mountain towns, thanks to its exceptional elevation, scenic location in the foothills of Pikes Peak, and the many unique attractions located around the corner from Woodland Park homes for sale.

Here are some of the attractions, small businesses, and adventures our real estate agents know that you won't want to miss when you spend the day in the City Above the Clouds:

  • Outdoor Adventures Around Woodland Park
    If you love to hike, explore, and perhaps capture some memorable photos of the great outdoors, then you'll feel right at home when you visit Woodland Park. There are trails here for every experience level, like the gorgeous Rainbow Gulch Trail, which traverses about 3 miles round-trip, provides access to the stunning Rampart Reservoir, and is rated at an easy difficulty level. The nearby Mueller State Park features more than 50 miles of trails of varying difficulties, while Eleven Mile State Park is ideal for camping, with 325 campsites and some of the best trout fishing in the region.

  • Delicious Dining for Every Taste and Budget
    After your outdoor adventures, settle in for a great meal and some delicious drinks from one of the many outstanding restaurants in Woodland Park. The Donut Mill is a long-time local favorite that's famous for its tempting selection of comfort food, while the Hungry Bear Family Restaurant serves breakfast all day and is ideal for a meal with the kids. You can also find some delicious, locally produced craft beers from the team at the Bierworks Brewery.

  • Family Fun and Educational Attractions
    For nearly 20 years, the Dinosaur Resource Center has been one of the most exciting, widely visited attractions in Woodland Park, and it only gets better every year. With more than two dozen dinosaur skeletons, countless fossils, educational exhibits, and fascinating learning opportunities, the Dinosaur Resource Center delights guests of all ages. There are many great shops to visit in Woodland Park as well, like the Colorado GearLab, where you can stock up on supplies for all of your outdoor adventures.

  • Enjoy a Scenic Ride to the Summit of Pikes Peak
    Since you're already visiting the City Above the Clouds, why not climb just a little bit higher and enjoy a view from the very top? Just 12 miles east of Woodland Park, you'll find Pikes Peak Highway, which can take you all the way to the summit of Pikes Peak. Just be sure to check online for the latest information on weather and road closures before you set out for your drive.
