Pike's Peak, Colorado Springs: 29 reviews and 66 photos

Pike's Peak is one of the most famous mountains in Colorado, more for its location next to Colorado Springs than any other reason. It towers 11,140 feet above sea level and is accessible by road, rail, or trail. Both of my trips to the top were on the Cog Railway from Manitou Springs, while my dad has taken the drive from Hwy 24. Each year there is the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb auto race, or you can attempt the Pikes Peak Marathon or the Ascent (half marathon).
