Pikes Peak - America's Mountain

Reserve Your Spot to Drive to the Top

With the completion of the Pikes Peak Summit Visitor Center, driving to the summit is in high demand. For the convenience of guests planning on driving to the summit, a new timed entry reservation system is now available and reserved time slots will be required starting on May 27, 2022. Reserving a time to drive to the top is designed to make your Pikes Peak experience more enjoyable and hassle-free, ensuring there will be space for you to park. While driving to the lot at the top requires a reservation, entrance to the Summit Visitor Center does not.
