The only way to see it, is to ride up. I really enjoyed it. The value for your money was very good. I think that you should remember to go potty first, as it was a long ride with only one stop.

My friend and I drove up Pikes Peak because the Cograil was sold out. I have previously drove up Mt. Evans and found the drive to be quite different. The view is absolutely gorgeous, the alps are clearly visible. It was a little pricey ($20 - $10 per person) for a short drive up but worth it if you are... More

Had fun driving up the mountain. Well worth the $20.00 fee. If you have not acclimated to the elevation in the Denver area, I would suggest not visiting this site until you have been in CO. for a couple of days. Air at the top is very thin a saw several people get sick.

I've been up this mountain 2.5 times now. Once I drove to 12,250 and played in the snow at the end of a switchback. Most amazing view. Then I took the Cog Railway since I couldn't drive to the top. More amazing views. A year later I DROVE to the top. Wow, thats one intense experience. Took the fam to... More

We took the cog railway and it was a lot of fun. It was cold and windy at the top, but the views were worth it. You can see for miles. Absolutely a must-see.

Ok, it was cloudy. There was NO view. (So we'll just have to do this again...) Still, it's an adventure, an experience, and even if the gift shop is cheesy, I bought a Pikes Peak jacket (and I never do that). You're up way high, Stargate is around here somewhere, and if the clouds would just lift, you know you'd... More

I'm sure it was beautiful but by the time we got to top I was so sick, came straight back down and just got out of hospital about an hour ago. There should be a warning on website and a verbal warning when you pay.
