The Pikes Peak Railway is beautiful train ride up to Pike's Peak. It is expensive, but I think it is better than driving up to Pike's Peak. The views are magnificent. The seats are crowded but it gives you an opportunity to meet people. Overall, it is an enjoyable trip.

PROS: Beautiful
CONS: Expensive, Crowded

This tour is great for all ages. The ride up to the top of Pikes Peak is relaxing and exhilirating all at the same time. The views are simply breathtaking. Wait till you get to the Windy Point -- it lives up to its name very well. Once you get to that point of the tour, it will get quite chilly, so bring a jacket!!

The tour cost $25pp, which we all felt was well worth it. We would do this again in a heartbeat.

We took the cog railway to the top of pike's peak in June of 2005. This trip was well worth the hefty $30 price tag per person. The entire trip is naratted with wonderful stories of the colorado area when first developing. The views are unparalleled. I would definitely make reservations before arriving. Try to go early in the morning as that time of day provides that greatest views.

PROS: the view

this is the way to get there! This is the world's highest cog railroad, the highest Colorado railroad AND highest train in the United States- it travels to 14,110 feet.
The disadvantage is the price:

$28.00 - from April 9th thru June 30th AND August 22nd thru January 1st, 2006
$29.00 - from July 1st through August 21st

Children (age 3 thru 12)-
$16.00 - from April 9th thru June 30th AND August 22nd thru January 1st, 2006
$17.00 - from July 1 through August 21st

Children 2 and under are free IF HELD ON LAP FOR ENTIRE TRIP.
