Originally a carriage route used by the founder of Colorado Springs, General William Jackson Palmer, High Drive is a scenic route along the mountainous highway near Colorado Springs. The steep drive along the Rockies lives up to its name as you do reach the top to witness the spectacular view. The juniper trees covering the mountain range and the canyons below, will make your climb truly rewarding. High Drive is a one-way road, so you need to take the same route back down.
