If you've ever wanted to travel to the top of Pike's Peak and you're not into hiking or biking, there's no better way than taking the Pikes Peak Cog Railway. The cars are spacious and every seat has a great view. There is a guide on the speaker that explains all the sights as you travel up and down the mountain. One word of advice: Bring a jacket and some gloves it gets mighty cold at the summit even in the summer. Another bit of advice: To avoid altitude sickness bring either two small bottles of water or one large bottle and drink one bottle slowly on the way up and one slowly on the way down. You'll be glad you did. Make sure the weather forecast calls for clear skies otherwise you won't get much of a view at the summit.
