The road is about 19 miles running from Cascade to the summit of Pikes Peak at an altitude of 14,115 feet. You’ll need to sharpen your driving skills before heading out because this highway has a lot of twists and sharp turns. Recreational activities include hiking, picnicking, biking and fishing. Warning: There are no gas stations along the highway.
