Technically, this isn't the top of the world-but it's an appropriate name for a gorgeous chunk of the Colorado Trail that would otherwise simply be known as another gorgeous chunk of the Colorado Trail. Besides, the trail runs near the Top Of The World Campground- close enough to borrow the moniker. This rollercoaster of a path wanders through forest and meadow to a breathtaking viewpoint a short distance from the campground. From the vista point, you can look east past the striking rock towers to the high plains and south to Pikes Peak. If the view isn't enough to draw you down the path, the wildflowers should be; they pepper the meadows in such profusion you don't have to suffer from hay fever to sneeze!
