Colorado Springs - Pike's Peak

Jump to last reply

We (2 adults) will be in Colorado Springs the week of Labor. We are planning on visiting the summit of Pike's Peak that Friday. My question is the best way to enjoy:
1. cograil? 2. drive ourselves? or 3. experience one of the bike tours down?

The bike tours state "weather permitting" and I've read on previous forums that the weather in the afternoon could be foggy.

We will be in Colorado Springs Tuesday through Saturday and plan on a day trip to the Royal Gorge one day and Garden of the Gods another. Any other attractions that are must sees but not a tourist trap? I've read that Seven Falls and Manitou Dwellings are not worth the price paid.

We are more into the majestical mountains that rock formations but still would like to visit Garden of the Gods.

Thanks in advance and two people visiting from Texas - we cannot wait to enjoy cooler weather!
