The new Pikes Peak Summit Visitor Center is set to open on June 24, 2021, pending weather and final construction activity. The new building will open in phases, so early visitors can expect to see final construction work taking place and finishing touches being made to the interpretive exhibits and signs. Fresh donuts and brand new menu and retail options will be available starting opening day. Exterior site work is expected to last through September 2021.
A complimentary shuttle is running through the end of July, and possibly longer, due to extremely limited parking capacity on the summit. No shuttles are available on July 13 and 19. Know before you go, and review shuttle information ahead of your visit. Summit access cannot be guaranteed, therefore, during this time a limited time 20% discount is being offered to all guests. Call 719-385-7325 for current highway conditions. As always, access is weather permitting. Sorry, no refunds.
