Pikes Peak road several years ago on vacation, and this one was every bit as dramatic, with no guard rails!
fourteeners"-- Longs Peak, Mount Evans, and Pikes Peak-- but according to the brochure it "proved unfeasible at the time" so they gave it up. That would have been really cool, though.
The park entrance fee was $10 per vehicle... a bargain compared to the $40 fee for Pikes Peak! Besides, it's closer to home... so I expect we'll be buying a season pass for $25 next year.
It's only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, but it's a great Sunday afternoon drive destination!
