Pikes Peak Highway Tours

Pikes Peak Highway
The Pikes Peak Highway offers an easy, scenic route to the top of iconic Pikes Peak. The 19-mile, paved toll road was originally built in 1915, and the entrance begins at 7,400 feet before climbing all the way to the top of the 14,115-foot summit. One of the best views of the peak can be found at the pullout between mile markers seven and eight. Along the way you can make a pit stop at the historic Glen Cove Inn, a cabin-turned-rest stop area featuring a gift shop, restaurant and restrooms.

At the summit, you’ll find the Summit House, which has the America the Beautiful monument and an observation deck from which you can enjoy incredible panoramic views stretching all the way to Colorado Springs. If the altitude proves overwhelming, head inside the Summit House to belly up to the oxygen bar and alleviate altitude sickness.

Practical Info

The Pikes Peak Highway entrance sits just west of Colorado Springs. To get there, take US-24, turn left onto Fountain Ave and follow signs for the Pikes Peak Highway. The drive up and back takes two to three hours, depending on your pace. There are no gas stations along the highway.
