On the front range of the Rocky Mountains, Pikes Peak - America's Mountain stands as one of Colorado's 53 '14ers'--mountains rising more than 14,000 ft (4,300 m). Visitor centers are located at 9.7 km (6 mi), 19.3 km (12 mi), and the peak's summit. These offer information, gift shops, and restaurants. To get to the summit, travel by car or train. The attraction's highway is notable for its dangerous twists and turns, as well as its unpaved, winding ascent on the last push up to the peak--but experienced drivers will enjoy the challenge. Or consider a ride on the Manitou and Pikes Peak Railway, which takes you to the summit on a historical set of tracks.

The most beautiful terrifying ride of my life. It's so beautiful and majestic
What a wonderful exciting trip to the top, I drove and it was definitely an adventure I didn't expect, very very scary but still fun. My heart was beating rapidly when we finally arrived. Air is thin at 14100 ft but take some time to regroup and the return was way simpler.
