Pikes Peak is easily one of the most popular places to visit in Colorado. Pikes Peak has had more visitors this year than any other year.

The amount of visitors at Pikes Peak has almost doubled since 2011. In 2011 there were 265,124 visitors and now in 2018 there have already been 527,696.

It's only September and over 520,000 people have already visited Pikes Peak. I bet they will set another record by the end of the year. It's easy to see why people flock to it, it's beautiful. I've heard so much about Pikes Peak that once I do hike a 14er, I want to do this one.

As of June a shuttle has been up and running at Pikes Peak. According to KRDO, the manager states that the shuffle is a huge success. A shuttle system seems smart to implement and it only makes sense when there are that many people.
