The Pikes Peak region has much in store for culture travelers. May Natural History Museum, in Colorado Springs, hosts one of the world’s largest collections of giant insects and mini mites. America's only mountain zoo, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, lets you ride an antique carousel, pet downy giraffes, and take in magnificent city views.
A 19th-century old west town replete with vintage storefronts, stagecoaches, and piano players comes alive at the Ghost Town Museum. Equally fascinating is America’s only vertical shaft gold mine, the Mollie Kathleen, which lets you experience the life of early miners. At 1,000 feet deep, claustrophobes might sit this one out. The Garden of the Gods Trading Post near Balanced Rock is a good stop for locally made artwork and jewelry.
Ascending the peak
Pikes Peak can be accessed in three ways: by hiking up Barr Trail, by driving along the scenic 19-mile Pikes Peak Highway, or via the historic Pikes Peak Cog Railway, which rumbles past waterfalls and pine and aspen forests. Once at the summit, stop at Pikes Peak Summit House to refuel with their donuts made from special high-altitude ingredients. Make sure to get a photo at the elevation signboard (14,115 feet above sea level) – after all, you are at the world's second most-visited mountain after Mt. Fuji. The summit offers birdseye views of the cities of Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, and Manitou Springs, as well as the Continental Divide range, which splits North America.
Besides the summit, consider visiting the Crystal Creek and Catamount Reservoirs located in the North Slope Recreation Area. Non-motorized boats can be rented during summer, and you can purchase fishing bait and snacks here as well.
Pikes Peak hosts important annual events, such as the summertime Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon, where runners scale the peak via the Barr Trail. Meanwhile, the Pikes Peak Challenge is a unique fundraiser for the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado, a great cause to support. The highly awaited Pikes Peak Celtic Festival features it all, with whiskey and scotch tastings, Celtic fireworks, kilted runs, music, Guinness beer, and authentic Celtic cuisine.
The year closes with the AdAmAn Club's New Year's Eve fireworks display, for which climbers scale Pikes Peak in the biting cold to set off a magnificent firework display seen for hundreds of miles along the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies. They flash mirrors to signal friends and family down in Colorado City. The tradition started in 1922 and has continued ever since.
