With the completion of the Pikes Peak Summit Visitor Center, driving to the summit is in high demand. For the convenience of guests planning on driving to the summit, a new timed entry reservation system is now available and reserved time slots will be required starting on May 27, 2022. Reserving a time to drive to the top is designed to make your Pikes Peak experience more enjoyable and hassle-free, ensuring there will be space for you to park. While driving to the lot at the top requires a reservation, entrance to the Summit Visitor Center does not.
Enjoy Pikes Peak at your leisure on the safe, scenic Pikes Peak Highway. Encounter some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world as you wind your way through an alpine wonderland, mountain reservoirs, beyond timberline, overtaking the clouds... all along the way to the 14,115 foot summit of America's most famous mountain.
