The Rock Ledge Ranch offers a look back in time. There are many special events all during the year. The events around Christmas are especially beautiful and the 4th of July is a must. You get to meet General George Washington, visit the soldier's camps, see demonstrations of the artillery and guns used during that time, hear speeches by several... More

Educational opportunity with historical re-enactments. Next to the Garden of the Gods so convenient to visit both in one day.

Whether an scheduled event is going on or not this property is beautiful and serene. Just like a walk back in time. We have been here several times and again visited during the 36th Folk Art Festival. Impressive to say the least. So glad we are members and will continue to join. It would be a travesty if this property... More

We hooked up with family at Rock Ledge Ranch, wanted to pick a place in the out of doors as the day was just gorgeous. Planned an hour checking it out, wound up staying for 3 hrs. This is because we visited every spot on the map, shopped in the General Store, and chatted with all the volunteers who were... More

My daughter loves touring the old homes. She's 12. It is a great family Christmas tradition. We ride the horse drawn wagon and sing carols!

Located by Garden of the Gods, Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site will appeal to lovers of living history museums. We enjoyed walking the grounds and visiting and touring the houses, and different areas of the historic Pikes Peak area. The guides dressed historically for that portion of the tour were informative and knowledgable and enjoyed what they were doing. Visiting... More

We went on the 4th of July and had a great time going back in history. A bit warm that day but then we received a small afternoon shower to cool us off. Very neat to see.

Located at the edges of Garden of the Gods this is a quaint historical place, but not much to offer in that respect. It is peaceful, and every year they hold a powwow that is a treat to attend.

This fascinating living history museum is located right outside the entrance to the Garden of the Gods, and must be overshadowed by its better-known neighbor since their were few visitors the day I was there. But we spent several happy hours visiting an Indian encampment, an early settler's cabin, the first ranch house in the area, and the family's turn-of-the-century... More
