Perfect time to visit! Weather cooperated and crowds weren't too bad! Shuttles took us to the very top which was great since as the driver the first 12,000 or so ft I couldn't sight see as much!

I really liked it and it's a once a life time thing and I think it's great and it's a place to be and it's very interesting place to see with a very picturesque view.

If you drive the Pikes Peak Highway there are pull outs and turn around points along the 19 mile journey. If you ride the Cog Railway you do not have the option to turn around.
