Safely Using the Mountain
The 19-mile Pikes Peak Highway is a 2-lane road ascending more than 6,000 feet in elevation to 14,115 feet. The views are breathtaking and the drive is truly amazing. We want you to experience all that Pikes Peak - America's Mountain has to offer and have a few safety tips for your visit.
The Pikes Peak Highway Rangers are on duty at all times when the highway is open. They are here to help make your trip to Pikes Peak the highlight of your vacation. If you have trouble of any kind, send for or wait for the Rangers who will assist you.
Mountain roads are as safe as any other roads if the driving speed is kept consistent with the type of road and conditions.
