Pike's Peak - America's Mountain, Colorado Springs

4.8
#1 of 971 in Outdoors in Colorado
On the front range of the Rocky Mountains, Pike's 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. Using our online itinerary creator, Colorado Springs attractions like Pike's Peak - America's Mountain can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
