At the foothills of Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs charms visitors with its small-town feel, fresh air, trails galore and plenty of places to eat locally.
Donate to the Mineral Springs Foundation to ensure the springs have long-term protection.
Put on your walking shoes, because the best way to see Manitou is to take a walk!
