Your visit to Colorado Springs is definitely not complete without a ride to the top of Pikes Peak. The mountain is most well-known from the Dr. Quinn-Medicine Woman series and just as it is shown in the footages, the view from the top of the mountain is wonderful. There are no words to describe the feeling you get when you're at the top. It's breathtaking.

The best way to get to the top is to take the train at the Cog Railroad. You have to book a ticket in advance in order not to wait in the station to get on board.

Address:
Pikes Peak Hwy, CO, USA
