Things to See and Do

Trails:

  • Devil’s Playground (664A) to Northwest summit of Pikes Peak: This approximately 14 mile out and back summit of Pikes Peak is one of the most spectacular trails in the Front Range. The summit to “America’s Mountain” is significantly less crowded than Barr Trail and offers spectacular views of the Great Divide course. 

 

  • The Crags Trail (664): This 4.5 mile out-and-back is popular with families and offers incredible views of Pikes Peak and the Great Divide course! The magnificent rock formations at the turnaround are uniquely stunning and definitely worth the trip.
