The Foothills Jeep tour highlights Colorado Springs most well-known landmarks. Western guides, the region’s
unique history and amazing scenery will provide an adventure you’ll never forget. Tours head into the foothills of Pikes Peak and the Rocky Mountains, with a stop at Helen Hunt Falls for a brief visit to a classic Colorado water fall 2000 feet above Colorado Springs. Above the falls your tour route joins the Shortline Railroad grade traversing through two historic rail road tunnels and offering spectacular vistas. The views over the city and out to the plains and beyond, inspired the song “America the Beautiful”.
The last stop is the Garden of the Gods. This city park is registered as a National Historic Landmark. Its spectacular red rock formations will keep you in awe. Your photo opportunities are unobstructed in the open-air Jeeps. Tour will conclude at the Broadmoor.
Please wear closed toe shoes.

If this activity is on your “bucket list”, Colorado is the place to experience a breath-taking adventure. At the
highest flight levels, snowcapped mountains, rivers and high plains are visible for over 100 miles in all directions. Floating lower over the foothills and ranch land you will often see deer, coyotes, jack rabbits, and even pronghorn antelope ... animals that are normally too shy to let you approach when you are walking on the ground. The post flight celebration features a champagne toast, orange juice, fresh fruit, pastries … presented with glass stemware and table cloth - all with an incredible view! Each new aeronaut receives a Flight Certificate suitable for framing.

Sit back, enjoy your Broadmoor box lunch as you soak up the views and sights along the climb. The highest cog railway in the world takes you through hidden valleys, past groves of quaking aspens and over the tundra at timberline. Once on the summit, you will see the same unparalleled vistas which inspired Katherine Lee Bates to write America the Beautiful.

Relax and take in the stunning alpine overlooks and breathe in the fresh Rocky Mountain air. You may even have the opportunity to view buffalo and elk! Following the horseback ride, our cowboy Jeep guide will enlighten you with tales of the Old West as we make our way back.

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. When completed in 1918, this Donald Ross-designed course was the highest golf course in the United States at 6,400 feet in elevation and Ross declared it his ‘best work’. The East Course is now a combination of the original Donald Ross design mixed with holes designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. in 1952.
The East Course has been home to many major tournaments, including the 1959 U.S. Amateur (which was Jack Nicklaus’ first major win), the 1967 U.S. Amateur, and the 1995 U.S. Women’s Open, which was Annika Sorenstam’s first major title. Most recently, the famous course served as the host to the 2008 U.S. Senior Open and the 2011 U. S. Women’s Open Championship. The East Course was one of only 12 North American and Caribbean golf courses to receive a five-star rating by Golf Digest.
The NAHAD tournament will feature a scramble format. Please indicate on the Registration Form if you would like to be paired with another member. It is usually extremely easy for NAHAD to honor your request for pairings with advance notice, but impossible to do this at the last minute. Also, we recommend calling anyone with whom you wish to be paired to see if they plan to play. Pairings will be done on a first noted, first designated basis.
Monday, May 2 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Price: $70, includes transportation and guided hike
Forget where you are on this tranquil three mile hike along North Cheyenne Creek. Starting at Gold Camp Road, we will walk approximately one mile on the roadbed (easy), turning off at the trailhead and hike over seven bridges on our way to a breathtaking view of the plains beyond. Trail/hiking/tennis shoes required. Trail rated MODERATE and suggested for those wanting a bit more exercise.
Monday, May 2 • 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Price: $99, includes transportation from Broadmoor, Segway instruction, tour, equipment and Guide
After training in the cone adventure park, you will be confident to spend 90 minutes on the Segway and experience one of nature’s greatest treasures, Garden of the Gods. Tours originate at the Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center where unobscured views will ensure your visit to this beautiful city park is memorable. Your guide will make several short stops to point out Red Tail hawks, eagles’ nests, ancient rock formations, exotic plants and wild life. You may see unique caricatures hidden in and climbing on the rocks. Your guide will speak a little about the history of the park and Colorado Springs, tell tales and true stories of the old west. You might even get rained on and have a possible encounter with a big horn sheep. Then in the end, all you remember is the Segway is sweet.
Please wear sturdy, closed toe shoes.
Tuesday, May 3 • 10:30 am – 3:00 pm

High up on Gold Camp Road we drive through old train tunnels, stopping for the incredible photo-op afforded by stunning vistas of Colorado Springs and beyond... then we drop back down into Old Colorado City, sample the bubbling mineral waters of Manitou Springs and enter awe-inspiring Garden of the Gods where we experience the park’s unique rock formations and ancient juniper trees.
