Hike to Pikes Peak Summit, video trail of trail
Hike to Pikes Peak summit from Crags Trailhead is a moderately used trail locate south of Divide, Colorado.
Starting at the Crags Trailhead in half a mile coming to a small stream and a log bridge veering to the right heading to Devils Playground and Pikes Peak. This part of the trail follows a stream through forest and meadow, with a couple of crossing before the switch backs and climb begin. The views once the incline starts are beautiful and just become more dramatic as you climb.
Above tree line the climb for the next half mile or less is very steep with very few switch backs. At the rim across the meadow is fairly level with spectacular panoramic views. In late July the steep meadow to Devils Playground will have a lot of wildflowers, with a small trickle of water coming from a spring just below the ridge. Remember to keep looking back and the views and spend a few moments on the ridge looking in every direction, before head off crossing the highway and hiking through Devils Playground heading to the summit.
Colorado Living is Attitude,
Tough enough to climb 50 plus 14er’s, backpack the 500 plus miles of the Colorado Trail or any other wilderness area, wading a river to gently placing a fly in front of a rising trout.
