Pikes Peak: America's Mountain

Pikes Peak: America’s Mountain located in Cascade CO

It is not everyday you can scale a mountain from the seat of your car. Welcome to Pikes Peak Mountain Highway, 14,115′ above ordinary.

The Pikes Peak Highway entrance is conveniently located 15 minutes west of Colorado Springs on Highway 24. The beauty of being so close to the city is that you can spend your time enjoying the mountain instead of getting to the mountains.

The safe, scenic highway provides you the opportunity to enjoy Pikes Peak at your leisure. From the gateway at an elevation of 7,400 feet, you will encounter some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world as you wind your way through an alpine wonderland of scenic beauty, mountain reservoirs, beyond timberline, overtaking the clouds…all along the way to the 14,115 foot summit of America’s most famous mountain.

Along the way, you will discover the North Slope Recreation Area, Crystal Reservoir Gift Shop, Historic Glen Cove Inn, and the Summit House. There are three lakes for fishing, picnic areas, hiking trails, and breathtaking views. Stop and watch one of the “Meet the Ranger” Interpretive Programs and learn about the history, myths, flora and fauna on the mountain.
