History:

Pikes Peak, located in the Rocky Mountains, is one of the most famous summits in the United States. The 14,115 ft. mountain stands 8,000 ft high over what is known as the “Pikes Peak Region.” This region includes many popular mountain towns at its base such as Colorado Springs, Woodland Park and Cripple Creek. On November 24, 1806, Lt. Zebulon Montgomery Pike set out from his stop near modern day Pueblo, Colorado, to climb the mountain. He was forced back by a blizzard and declared that no man would ever reach the 14,115-foot summit that now bears his name. Today, popular routes up Pikes Peak include hiking up Barr Trail, driving via Pikes Peak Highway, or taking a ride up the Pikes Peak Cog Railway.
