Drive to the top of Pikes Peak: 14,115′. This is a tollway so you pay per person. There are some good fishing lakes on the way up if you bring a pole. Be aware of altitude sickness above treeline, and use lower gears coming down... your breaks will overheat!
This toll road will take you to the top of Pikes Peak. There is shopping and food at the top. If you are coming from lower elevation please think about taking some canned air with you. Most stores with sporting goods will have the canned oxygen. The elevation at the top is over 14,000 feet.
High Altitude views. Suggest going after you've acclimated a couple days. Walgreens sells canned air that will really help if you feel light headed during your trek up the mountain. Get it in advance!

“This trail goes to the top of Pikes Peak and is used by locals and local Olympic athletes in training all year round. The elevation gain will leave you winded no matter how long you've been in Colorado so it's a workout but the views are incredible. ”

“Located next to the Garden of the Gods, this quaint ranch is free to the public. Take a stroll among the farmhouses and visit the pioneer homestead located just beyond the horse stalls. It's a great place for a picnic! ”
