Barr Trail Detour to Summit Pikes Peak

Pikes Peak Update 5/20/2020
Due to construction of the new Summit Visitor Center, Barr Trail has a detour to reach the summit, effective May 16-July 31. The alternate route will take hikers from the end of Barr Trail, down the Cog Railway track bed to the 19-mile point where hikers will access the Pikes Peak Highway and then hike up the shoulder of the road to the summit. Detour adds approximately a mile. Signs will be posted at the base of Barr Trail, at Barr Camp (which is temporarily closed due to COVID-19), and at the detour point. Get more info at or call 719-385-7784.
