Pike’s Peak is an extraordinary experience; as “seniors”, we were allowed to drive to the top. (Maybe families with young children also, but check in advance). The trip was gorgeous, round trip including a brief stop at the top took approx 2 hours, but well...More

Where else can you drive your vehicle, auto, motorcycle, or bicycle to a top of a mountain 14,115 feet high? It's Pikes Peak. There are building a new Summit House so parking in very limited. They are only letting a select few to drive the...More

Weather can vary so it is very difficult to say. September does offer fall colors on the mountain and pleasant temperatures.
