Few places in the world so grand in scale are also accessible to experience first-hand. The safe, scenic 19-mile highway provides you the opportunity to enjoy Pikes Peak at your leisure. Along the way, discover the North Slope Recreation Area, Crystal Reservoir Gift Shop, Historic Glen Cove Inn, and the Summit House. There are three lakes for fishing (May-Oct), picnic areas, hiking trails, and breathtaking views. The grandeur of the mountain often piques the curiosity of visitors, and the “Meet the Ranger” program is the perfect place to learn first-hand about Pikes Peak’s history, geology, nature, wildlife, and events.

You soon realize this is unlike any other highway you have driven. There are no billboards or caravans of speeding motorists here, just a peaceful, winding journey to another world. Keep an eye out for deer, elk, yellow-bellied marmots, Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep and the infamous Bigfoot.
