Elevation

The Zoo’s elevation rises from 6,714 feet at the front admission gate to nearly 7,000 feet above sea level at the Zoo’s highest points of Asian Highlands and Rocky Mountain Wild.

With elevations of this magnitude, it’s important for guests to:

  • DRINK WATER – Keep hydrated by taking plenty of breaks to rehydrate with water.
  • Take your time and don’t overdo it, especially if you are visiting from locations much lower in altitude than Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
  • Consider taking the Zoo Shuttle to get around Zoo grounds.
