This fairly easy climb starts in Divide, CO, and faces the northwest slope of Pikes Peak. The total 6.4-mile trail is perfect for runners and bikers in the warmer months and great for snowshoeing or skiing in the winter. Climbers will find a wonderful payoff of 360-degree views of the Sawatch Range, Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Pikes Peak, and Catamount Reservoirs.
This is a perfect mountain for beginners or more casual climbers, and if you have a furry friend, Raspberry Mountain is also fairly popular for hikers with dogs. For more places to go in and around Colorado Springs with your pup, click here.
