Throughout the closure and weather permitting, Pikes Peak Highway visitors will be able to park at Devil's Playground where they can enjoy views from 13,500 feet and hike various trails.
Hikers will not be able to access the summit and must be prepared to hike back down either the Crags Trail or Barr Trail.
Signage indicating the temporary summit closure will be present on both trails.
The new Summit Visitor Center is expected to open in early summer 2021.
