The first think to remember is get your reservations well in advance as they fill up quickly. It's a cog railway trip up to the top of Pike's Peak. Takes about 1:30 to go up and you spend 30 minutes or so at the top....More

The train is a nice ride (both up and back). You see lots of beautiful scenery and we even saw some chipmunks, a mule deer and the "prairie dog" type animals closer to the peak. The train moves fairly slowly so that you can take...More

There were 11 of us on the cogway. We were able to share the experience together since we were all together vs several cars. It was a relaxing trip up and back. We saw ground hogs, elk, fox, birds, waterfalls, hikers, sleet, clouds, a lake...More

Breathtaking views from the top of the peak. The Cog Railway is interesting but the trip up the mountain is 1 1/2 hr each way which can be difficult with kids. Make sure to bring water and snacks for the ride.
