  • Man has had no hand in this beauty. Stunning natural structures made by weathering and erosion. Drive, ride, or hike if you can. The park visitor center is a wealth of information, has a fabulous gift...  more »
  • As far as mountain tops go this one is over rated. There is nothing left of the natural beauty of the mountain as the top is all commercialized. The only thing missing is for someone to put asphalt ov...  more »

  • Pikes peak was amazing!! The views from the top and slob. The drive was breathtaking and scary! Must drive slow and with a steady hand, but definitely worth it! Take a jacket, it's cold and windy at the top! Make sure you have plenty of room on your camera because you'll get some great shots.
  • I absolutely loved going! I went with my son, the drive is absolutely amazing! For 2 adults it was $24 to enter the park. I would not suggest eating there, we had cheeseburgers and they were so gross and for 2 people it was $21 to eat a cheeseburger combo meal. I would definitely recommend going.We also saw wild life it was awesome!
  • I did not go all the way to the top. If you use the password, "north slope", you only pay 1/3 the price and can visit / fish 3 reservoirs: crystal creek, south catamount, and north catamount. Beautiful lakes, north catamount is flies and lures only. The fish are very easy to catch, 12 to 14 inch rainbow trout are the most common.
  • The views are spectacular. However they really need to open the park earlier. That's the only frustrating part about it. Ranger was extremely helpful
  • Worth the trip--at least once. The top is surreal. Easy way for anyone to experience a14er.
