There are four main ways to explore Pikes Peak and reach the summit:
1. Driving Your Car
Experience the mountain up close by ascending the scenic Pikes Peak Highway, a spectacular toll road that winds its way up the mountain. With the Pikes Peak Summit Project underway, the summit is considered an active construction zone, so please be aware of your surroundings when you reach the top. Find more details about this exciting addition scheduled for a 2020 opening here.
For the truly adventurous, cycling up Pikes Peak provides one of the most intense challenges in the world. There are also companies that will drive you to the top and provide a guided bike tour down the highway.
