Discovered in 1881, Cave of the Winds Mountain Park has been a must-see Colorado Springs attraction for travelers for more than a century. We’re one of the premiere show caves in the United States – and, at 7,000 feet, we’re also one of the highest!

Conveniently located near Pikes Peak and Manitou Springs, choose from three cave tours and enjoy spectacular scenery, daring attractions and rides, family-friendly and kid-friendly activities atop breathtaking Williams Canyon. From mild to wild, exploring and soaring, we’re the perfect Colorado experience inside the mountain and out!


Wear comfortable clothing: jeans, shorts, or even a comfortable skirt will do. Make sure your shoes have good traction – sneakers or hiking boots are ideal. Bring a light jacket – even in the heat of a Colorado summer, the temperature in these Colorado caves is a pleasant 54 degrees.
Cave of the Winds Mountain Park is an exciting Colorado natural attraction that can be enjoyed by everyone in your family, from toddlers to grandparents. Cave tours are not recommended for pregnant women or people with heart or respiratory problems. All family members can enjoy our visitor center, gift shop, and the lovely views of Williams Canyon.
