Chipita Park, Co. is shadowed by the 14,110-foot Pikes Peak and is just minutes from famous mountain restaurants and such outdoor activities as fishing and hiking. Chipita Park is the youngest in the collection of towns in the Ute Pass, which was first used as a path across the Rockies by the Ute Indians. Spanish explorers and missionaries were the next group to utilize the pass and, finally, the trail was paved over and became Highway 24. The towns along the Ute Pass sprang up in the 1800s, first as vacation spots for Kansans in the hot summer months, and later for easterners. Now, Victorian-style houses line area streets, creating a charming and tranquil atmosphere.
Between the neighboring towns of Cascade and Green Mountain Falls are countless outdoor activities. Hikes to Crystal and Catamount Falls should top any visitor's to-do list, as should a picnic at Gazebo Lake. Don't miss the Fireman's Follies each February in Green Mountain Falls.
