When to Get There

The Pikes Peak Highway is open year-round, snow conditions permitting. The road is gated and the hours when it is open vary based on the season so call ahead to check the current hours and road conditions. Weather on the mountain is erratic and can be different at the base than at the summit. Ranger-led interpretive discussions are offered in the summer.
