It’s one of my personal favorites but probably because it’s a regular for me. I prefer snowshoeing up it as the view at the summit is not clear without trees if you are not 6 feet tall or taller during the spring/summer, but Pikes Peak has a gorgeous view on one side. It’s a great training mountain for working on longer steep mountains as it has a continuous and moderately steep incline almost the whole way.
