The tough 12.5-mile Barr Trail ascends Pikes Peak with a substantial 7400ft of elevation gain. Most hikers split the trip into two days, stopping to overnight at Barr Camp , the halfway point at 10,200ft. The trailhead is near the Manitou Springs cog railway depot; parking is $5.

If you're interested in doing it as a day hike, you can buy a one-way ticket ($22; first or last departure only) from the Cog Railway. You’ll be let out onto a spur trail 1.5 miles from Barr Camp where you can join the main trail to the summit (7.5 miles total).
