Manitou Springs is a historic mountain town at the foot of Pikes Peak. Our narrow streets and mountain geography require a balance between parking and maintaining our natural charm.

Special Events may require road closures or may limit parking in certain areas. Please follow all signed detours and avoid parking in prohibited areas as they are strictly enforced. One of the best options is always to park in one of our free lots and take the FREE shuttle. Additional information can be found on our FREE Shuttle and Parking Information page.

Oct. 27, 2018 – Emma Crawford Coffin Races

During the coffin races, our small city triples in size, which can make getting around extremely difficult. We strongly advise you to take the shuttles from the remote parking lot located at Rock Ledge Ranch (3105 Gateway Rd Colorado Springs, CO 80804) Shuttles will run continuously from 9am-6pm on race day. Shuttles are a popular option so remember to build extra time into your commute. Each shuttle has a limited capacity and lines may be long.

FREE SHUTTLE HOURS on Oct. 27, 2018
9 am- 6 pm

**Shuttles will drop off at Memorial Park, Manitou Springs**
