A scenic overlook view of the valley below to the
horizon from the 9,165 foot mountain pass "Ute Pass" 26
miles west of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Easily accessible along US
Hwy 24, Ute Pass lies along the Ute Trail route that was
originally carved by herds of buffalo traveling between
South Park and the eastern plains.
The native Ute Indian tribe called the pass "El Puerto del
Sierra Almagre" / "Doorway to the Red Earth Mountains".
