North America’s Most Visited Peak

Pikes Peak near Colorado Springs is America’s Mountain, states PikesPeak.com.  The peak height is at 14,115 feet and it attracts 500,000 visitors every year.  https://www.pikes-peak.com/

Visitors enter through the main entrance and, pending no stops, can make it to the summit in about 30 minutes, if the road is open all the way.
