Fodor's Expert Review Pikes Peak Cog Railway

Colorado Springs Transportation Site (Airport, Bus, Ferry, Train)
Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Pikes Peak, Colorado

The world's highest cog train departs from Manitou Springs and follows a frolicking stream up a steep canyon, through stands of quaking aspen and towering lodgepole pines, before reaching the timberline, where you can see far into the plains until arriving at the summit. Advance reservations are recommended in summer and on weekends, as this three-hour trip sells out regularly.
