We drove our own jeep up pikes peak highway and as scary as that was it was so worth it. Words and photos can't quite capture the feeling if being on top of the mountain. There are facilities and a restaurant at the top but it's just normal theme park fare. Plan for 3-4 hours if you want to make... More

We rode our Harley up to the peak. What a beautiful ride & views. Here, you are on top of the world! Don't miss the donuts, they come out piping hot with a crunchy edge.

I'd really been looking forward to this for a while and I ended up sitting backwards and on the aisle on the trip up so I really couldn't see too much and couldn't get any pictures and the when we arrived on top it was raining! We went inside to get donuts and after we'd eaten it had cleared up... More

Pikes peak is a must see. The views are amazing and the drive is exhilarating. Be sure to bring a hat if it's a sunny day, especially if you are hair challenged as I am. My souvenir was a nice sunburn on the top of my head. It was worth it. Don't miss this if you are nearby.

I hiked to the summit from the Crags Campground trailhead. About 14 miles round trip. It took about 8 hours. Beautiful views of the surrounding areas. The summit was a bit crowded and the restrooms were busy but clean. Only saw a few hikers on the trail, which was well marked. Use extra caution during the last mile or so... More

If you don't want to hike or drive take theVig railway. It's a great sight to see and gives a great way to see so much without worry. You have about 30 minutes at the top before the train leaves to take you back down the mountain in an overall time of about 3 hours. Another great sight to see... More

Extremely peaceful drive at 8am with minimal traffic. The views are incredible with numerous pull offs on the drive. Three stores / rest stops spread out along the way. $12 per person in the car. When we left around 11am steady traffic was going up including tours. I recommend going early. Bike tours travel down the same road.

With a carload price of 40.00 and individual price of 12.00 what you get is the ability to drive up a 14,000 foot mountain, at a price. You can drive up other 14 ft mountains in colorado for free, well maybe not to the top, but close enough. Slow traffic, lot's of tourists. I was on a motorcycle so expect... More

Inspiring place, but know if you are a flatlander or sea level tourist, it will be a little strenuous to breathe up there. A must see if you come to the Springs.

Took the tram up from Manitou Springs. I told my wife tha I preferred the cog rwy. over driving miles of gravel road with no shoulders. WHAT!! it's paved now and has been widened what a change in 30 years. Still magnificent views only bad thing is lack of potty facilities at the top. Overall very imrressive.
