The Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway will be back and better than ever in May 2021. The iconic Pikes Peak Cog Railway, one of only two cog railways in the United States, and its view from the summit is where “America the Beautiful” was penned. Experience this with your family when it reopens.


Tickets are available now for spring and summer. The cost for the scenic, nine-mile journey to the 14,115-foot National Historic Landmark of Pikes Peak is $58 for adults and $48 for children 12 and under for advance e-ticket purchases or $59.50 at the depot window. The three-hour round-trip showcases sightseeing, Colorado views and the new Manitou Depot and Pikes Peak Visitor Center, as well as so much more.


New hiking, biking and trail experiences are available for more active family travelers. Hike to the top on the 13-mile Barr Trail, or bike down for a 19.5-mile downhill adventure. Many options exist and travelers can find what works best for their family.


Built in 1891 and owned and operated by The Broadmoor since 1925, the railway is the highest railroad in America, the highest cog railway in the world, one of Colorado’s top attractions and one of the nation’s most unique experiences. Since October 2017, he underwent a $100 million renovation of its tracks, cogs, railcars and depot. The Broadmoor has an offer that includes accommodations, train tickets for each person, a commemorative gift and suites available at 25 percent off published rates.
