Barr Camp (13 miles)

Constructed in 1922, this historic cabin welcomes weary hikers for a night of rest, spaghetti dinner and pancake breakfast before the final push to the summit of Pikes Peak. Nestled 6 miles above Manitou Springs, cabins, lean-to shelters and tent sites are available by reservation. Plan to provide your own sleeping bag, water filter and gear.

With over 21 miles of hiking and biking trails, plus 51 full-service campsites and 10 walk-in sites, Cheyenne Mountain State Park gives you plenty of outdoorsy fun within an arm’s reach of the cities’ attractions. Take your aim in the archery range or enjoy the playground with the kiddos. Explore nature’s diversity with prairie-to-peak ecosystems along the trails. 

Pike National Forest (8+ Miles) 

For those looking for a more rugged trip, the vast Pike National Forest offers dispersed camping almost anywhere within its leafy borders. Set up camp and seek out adventure on popular trails such as The Crags or Horsethief Falls. Wind up the mountain on the rustic Old Stage Road, a dirt road that features roadside and meadow camping just past the first several miles.
