Pikes Peak Cog Railway

Featured Attraction:
PIKES PEAK COG RAILWAY


There is a wealth of activity to do in the Pikes Peak Region. One of the most popular attractions is the Pikes Peak Cog Railway.

Pikes Peak is one of Colorado's most famous mountains, where the song "America the Beautiful", was inspired from. Pikes Peak is at an elevation of 14,110 feet and one of the most accessible mountain peaks in the state of Colorado.

The Manitou & Pikes Peak Railway Company was founded in 1889 and the first trains made their way to the top of Pikes Peak in 1891.

Today, hundreds of people board the train daily and make the summit to Pikes Peak. It's one of the "don't miss while you're here" activities to do. At the top you can see 360 degrees for hundreds of miles in all directions. On a clear day you can see into 4 states.
