Woodland Park, at an altitude of nearly 8,500 feet, is located 18 miles west of Colorado Springs along the north slope of Pikes Peak in eastern Teller County. Much of the history of the West passed through this area on the old Ute Trail—now Highway 24—as hunters, trappers, cowboys, Native Americans, settlers, miners, railroaders, ranchers, and tourists discovered an abundance of natural beauty and varied business opportunities through the years. Woodland Park is now home to about 8,000 year-round residents, many of whom treasure not only the spectacular scenery but also the rich past of the town. This evocative tour through that past shares vintage photographs collected by the Ute Pass Historical Society.

Located in Woodland Park, the Ute Pass Historical Society selected these touchstone images from its extensive collection of historical photographs, with many from the Wellington historic photograph collection. The society, which was established in 1976, works to preserve the history of the Ute Pass region, which includes Woodland Park, and to share that history with the present community and future generations. Its members and volunteers researched, assembled, and wrote this book.
