El Paso County

Trip Planner USA  /  Colorado  /  El Paso County
Encompassing the central part of Colorado, El Paso County features a diverse landscape ranging from mountains in the west to the prairies in the east. Famous for its scenic beauty, this part of the state inspired the lyrics of the iconic song "America the Beautiful." Pikes Peak, one of Colorado's 53 mountains reaching more than 4,300 m (14,000 ft) above sea level, dominates the county's skyline and attracts hikers from around the country. Plan to spend at least a few days exploring the protected wilderness areas around the peak during your vacation, but don't forget to leave some time on your itinerary for Colorado Springs, the county's biggest city, known for its sports venues and parks. El Paso County is in Colorado (CO). Explore the family-friendly attractions of El Paso County and add them to your vacation plans using our United States travel route builder .
