wonderful, time after time – the views you will never tire of. layers of clothes are recommended, even in the summer it is a good 30 degrees below, what summertime is in the Springs. I recomend the donut and coffee mug special, not for the taste but the experience. the dense donut does not rise well because of the high altitude, but is not to bad. the cup you get to keep as a souvenir and its fun to take the cog railway if you have the money, or just pay less , taking the pikes peak highway off highway 24 past manitou springs, and take a leisurely trip to the top, stopping wherever you wish to take fantastic scenic pics with your cam. watch out though on the way down the mountain, stop at all the brake stops and appreciate that your breaks can get real hot coming down even in first gear, but its a fun experience for the whole family. Enjoy
Marvel at the majestic contrast between the Rocky Mountains and colorful eastern plains. – In Short
The same majesty that inspired "America the Beautiful" captivates visitors as they stand on the summit of this peak. Ironically, the person after whom the peak was named, Lt. Zebulon Pike, was unsuccessful in his only attempt to climb the mountain. Pikes Peak can be reached by road, hiking trail or cog railway. Also, be sure to bring along plenty of warm clothing; the winds blowing atop this 14,000-footer can be bone-chilling, even in summer.
MAGESTIC even from the Springs – Pikes Peak is awesome, a place to 'peak' at each and every day. Unless your behind a hill or some 20 year old trees, it is visable from the whole region, even from Denver. A real sight from southbound Federal Blvd., while passing Loretto Heights. No place, icon, nor person can be confused with this master of majesty, truly America's Mountain........take a peak!
