Drive the Pikes Peak Highway to the Summit
There’s only one 14,000-foot peak in Colorado that you can reach by driving all the way up to the summit. It's 19 miles of hairpin turns to get donuts at the Summit House.
Colorado has 42 state parks, many wildlife preserves, plus parks devoted to the state's history. Visit these smaller parks to explore dinosaur dig sites, ancient cliff dwellings, mountain peaks and canyons.
