Due to spring weather delays that have impacted the construction schedule, the Pikes Peak summit will remain closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic until June 15.
The new Pikes Peak Summit Visitor Center is set to open on June 24, 2021, pending weather and final construction activity. The new building will open in phases, so early visitors can expect to see final construction work taking place and finishing touches being made to the interpretive exhibits and signs. Fresh donuts and brand new menu and retail options will be available starting opening day. Exterior site work is expected to last through September 2021.
Until June 15 and weather permitting, Pikes Peak Highway visitors will be able to park at Devils Playground where they can enjoy views from 13,500 feet and hike various trails. Hikers will not be able to access the summit and must be prepared to hike back down either the Crags Trail or Barr Trail. Signage indicating the temporary summit closure will be present on both trails.
Starting June 15, a complimentary shuttle will run through the end of July, and possibly longer, due to limited parking capacity on the summit. Know before you go, and review shuttle information (coming soon!) ahead of your visit. As always, plan ahead and call 719-385-7325 for current highway conditions. All access is weather permitting. Sorry, No Refunds. View hours and rates.
The Broadmoor Manitou & Pikes Peak Cog Railway, owned and managed by The Broadmoor, reopened May 20 to the public.
