I got dropped off at the top and rode down on my mountain bike. Real hairy at the top and not very many areas to catch much speed. I may have bit off more than I could chew for my skill level but glad I took on the challenge.

Did the full 13 mi. hike from the Barr Trail parking lot up to the Summit of Pikes Peak. Took a little over 10 hours to summit. A beautiful trip for any hiker and/or nature lover!

Completed this last July for my summit of pikes peak. We did the ascent and decent (26 miles). Overall this is a bit tougher but once you make it passed the tree line and get about a mile from the summit it's beautiful. Cirque is also beautiful don't go by if you're afraid of drop offs. I highly recommend checking out the rock formations off trail

Rode the Cog Train to Pikes Peak then half way down. Hiked to Barr Camp and the down. Except for the trails being really washed out, the hike was full of scenery. Its a real work out.

I do both up and down to the summit often. It takes a long time, and is easier in the summer when you have lots of light. This is a beautiful hike with lots of neat stuff to see and it is great because access is so easy.
