Pikes Peak via the Crags – Colorado 14ers | Cinematic Hike

View Original Post for complete content...

Filed Under: Climb

Pikes Peak is a 14,110 foot mountain accessible by hike, climb, or even car located west of Colorado Springs in the Pikes National Forest. In this video, I hike Pikes Peak via the Crags Trailhead with my dog. I would rate this a difficult hike due to the high altitude and trail length. The hike starts just below 10,000 feet and includes 4,300 feet of vertical gain over the course of 7 miles to the summit. I would consider this route slightly easier (and more scenic) than hiking via the Barr Trail, as the Barr trail is significantly longer. Below treeline, there are a few tricky spots where you can go on the wrong trail (I did this twice, but caught myself pretty fast), so be vigilant and ensure to research the route.
