Pikes Peak

An American icon that has drawn explorers and travelers for centuries, inspired the song of a nation and tests adventurers who are up for any challenge. Pikes Peak is a National Historic Landmark and home to a breathtaking summit. But for you, it could be the backdrop of an unforgettable vacation.

The Wildlife


What will you see along the way? As you travel through four of the eight distinct life zones of Colorado, you’re bound to catch a few sightings of some of our favorite wildlife friends: elk, deer, yellow-bellied marmot, moose and maybe an occasional bear or mountain lion; plus Pikes Peak is home to one of Colorado’s largest bighorn sheep herds.
