Segway Tours

In the Pikes Peak Region

Segwaying is a feat of engineering that allows an individual to explore scenic pathways and urban settings with an innovative self-balancing device. To ride a Segway, lean forward to go and back to brake while using the handlebars to go any other direction you please. Segway’s are a fun and practical way to explore new cities and towns while transporting you to your destination.

Getting Started

See the local sites and test your skills using these space-age machines. A guided adventure that includes training will ensure that you have a unique adventure in Colorado Springs. Tour the sites that inspired the song America the Beautiful. Segway tours are a fun way to get outside and look awesome at the same time. These futuristic machines allow you to journey on sidewalks and roads with ease. Picture yourself exploring our iconic neighborhoods like the Old North End or the Broadmoor, or imagine traveling along Garden of the Gods and staring up at those great red rock walls with a few friends or family members. You can cover a long distance and see more, making the Segway a perfect option when considering a fun and easy-going activity for a beautiful summer day.

Pro Tip

Do keep in mind that Segway users do not have precedence over pedestrians. Segway users are required to ride on the right side of the sidewalk unless passing, although it is important to be aware and communicative with pedestrians so they know where you are for your safety and theirs.

Be Prepared

Before going out on your trip there are a few things to keep in mind. Make sure that you and the group with you are able to keep control of the Segway by meeting the weight and age requirement set by your device or tour guide. Test your Segway before going on roads and sidewalks in either a designated area or a place with little risk such as a parking lot.

Outdoor Ethics for Segway Tours

The Leave No Trace Seven Principles are reprinted with the permission of the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. For more information, visit www.LNT.org.

  • Know the regulations and special concerns for the area you’ll visit.
  • Prepare for extreme weather, hazards, and emergencies.
  • Schedule your trip to avoid times of high use.
  • Visit in small groups when possible. Consider splitting larger groups into smaller groups.
  • Repackage food to minimize waste.
  • Use a map and compass to eliminate the use of marking paint, rock cairns or flagging.
  • Durable surfaces include established trails and campsites, rock, gravel, dry grasses or snow.
  • Protect riparian areas by camping at least 200 feet from lakes and streams.

Good campsites are found, not made. Altering a site is not necessary.

In popular areas

  • Concentrate use on existing trails and campsites.
  • Walk single file in the middle of the trail, even when wet or muddy.
  • Keep campsites small. Focus activity in areas where vegetation is absent.

In pristine areas

  • Disperse use to prevent the creation of campsites and trails.
  • Avoid places where impacts are just beginning.
  • Pack it in, pack it out. Inspect your campsite and rest areas for trash or spilled foods. Pack out all trash, leftover food and litter.
  • Deposit solid human waste in catholes dug 6 to 8 inches deep, at least 200 feet from water, camp and trails. Cover and disguise the cathole when finished.
  • Pack out toilet paper and hygiene products.

To wash yourself or your dishes, carry water 200 feet away from streams or lakes and use small amounts of biodegradable soap. Scatter strained dishwater.

  • Preserve the past: examine, but do not touch cultural or historic structures and artifacts.
  • Leave rocks, plants and other natural objects as you find them.
  • Avoid introducing or transporting non-native species.
  • Do not build structures, furniture, or dig trenches.
  • Campfires can cause lasting impacts to the backcountry. Use a lightweight stove for cooking and enjoy a candle lantern for light.
  • Where fires are permitted, use established fire rings, fire pans, or mound fires.
  • Keep fires small. Only use sticks from the ground that can be broken by hand.
  • Burn all wood and coals to ash, put out campfires completely, then scatter cool ashes.
  • Observe wildlife from a distance. Do not follow or approach them.
  • Never feed animals. Feeding wildlife damages their health, alters natural behaviors, and exposes them to predators and other dangers.
  • Protect wildlife and your food by storing rations and trash securely.
  • Control pets at all times, or leave them at home.
  • Avoid wildlife during sensitive times: mating, nesting, raising young, or winter.
  • Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience.
  • Be courteous. Yield to other users on the trail.
  • Step to the downhill side of the trail when encountering pack stock.
  • Take breaks and camp away from trails and other visitors.
  • Let nature’s sounds prevail. Avoid loud voices and noises.
