Train Schedule

Whether you’re an early riser or prefer to enjoy the afternoon light, the Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Railway will operate between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. daily in the summer months, with departures every 40 minutes until 5:20 p.m. The round trip is about three hours (one hour up, 40 minutes at the summit, and one hour and 10 minutes back down to the Depot), so arriving 30 minutes ahead of time and of course, browsing through the gift shop afterwards, means it’s about a four-hour experience.

The Route

There’s so much to discover on your 9-mile journey to the top of Pikes Peak, and we’re sure you’ll find it’s more about the journey than the destination. Rumble along Ruxton Creek in Englemann Canyon, past Minnehaha Falls, through Deer Park, and through the Mountain View siding where you get your first glimpse of the Summit. Beautiful scenery, a range of wildlife, an extraordinary adventure — you won’t be disappointed.
