One of my favorite places is 11 mile Canyon (not the reservoir). It is about an hour away from COS, but great location.
Thunder Ridge / Meadow Ridge are both nearby above the city. National? Parks run those. There is a resort or two near Manitou Springs that are always busy (Pikes Peak Park and Garden of Gods Resort)
I'm supplying the first few rounds of bourbon and coke @ the campground

Actually found too many possible jeep rides...
I can't decide so we may have to stop all the touristy stuff like pikes peak, GoG, Cheyenne Mountain, silverton train. rafting, etc...
but we have Sun-Mon open...
I am game for any route to CoS,
but we are meeting some people in Durango and running over to CoS with them... last time he followed me, he let me get out of sight and got lost - so will probably take the safest slowest route
they are cool, fun people, but driving a coach, well he SHOULD drive slowly
so probably back down to Durango, then pagosa springs and thru Salida - I guess it didn't register when I first looked that it was 300+ miles, so it's going to be a haul !
Where in Colo are you? we will be in durango Sat 7/30 going to Cos 8/3 and leaving there Sat 8/6 with stops on the way back @ Palo Duro Canyon - Amarillo...
