A couple of inches of fresh snow on top was a nice change. Braving the cold was worth it to get to the doughnuts!

Nice isolated route, until you have to walk along the road. I attemted it the previous winter as well, but didn't get above treeline due to storm and winds.

Camped out the previous night, had great calm, warm weather and many beers!

Pushed for the summit the next day. Met a guy near the top. They were having some sort of pre-race session before the Pikes peak race the next day. Lots of cars and women!! It snowed at the top! On the 3rd of July. It was awesome.

We hiked down together sharing a spliff he rolled and proceeded to drink the rest of the beer I didn't finish the night before when we got back to my campsite.

Without doubt, one of the most enjoyable 14ers times I had.

A very long ascent. The first and last three miles are tough, middle section is where you can really move. This was my 1st 14er and it woke the mountaineering beast within me. Hiked with Tom and JD

Did the Pikes Peak run- I figured it would be a good way to do a peak like this. Still beautiful despite all the people and fresh snow in August.

nice start with a big group layne got together. after leaving treeline, the wind picked up. constant 40-50 mph winds made for a miserable experience.

This is a lame summit log. Elves, do not feel bad removing me if you must. When I was just a young'en I road in a car to the summit of Pikes. I promise when I move back to Colorado to do a real climb of Pikes. I despise the roads on Evans and Pikes, but my love of mountains had to start somewhere.

My climbing partner Gary and I climbed from the Crags Camp. The weather was generally foul, at about twenty degrees, and a stiff sixty mile per hour wind.

Hiked to Barr Camp at night on September 30. Then hiked to summit with full pack on the first and descended back to trailhead. This is a rough hike with a full overnight pack. would've been much quicker had i left most of my gear at Barr Camp and picked it up on the way out.

At the time I was living in St. Louis and had came out to Colorado to summit West Spanish Peak on a Friday. I felt strong after finishing and decided to attempt Pikes Peak via the Barr Trail on Saturday. Those were two tough days for a flatlander! Took the cog railroad down. My first thirteener and my first fourteener in one weekend. I was officially hooked!

Here's probably a new record for tardiness! I climbed Pikes 30 years ago, at the age of 26. It was my second 14er. I don't even remember the exact date! I camped overnight just above timberline, then summitted and went back down the next day. I rode my bike to and from the trailhead.

Thanks for putting in such a great trail Mr Barr. Left the TH at 6:45 AM and got back at 4:15 PM. Now I know why people shuttle the descent. Weather was great. Next time I'll camp at Barr Camp, and make a summit bid the next morning.

Beautiful day! Very foggy and misty as we started, it felt as if we were walking through a rain forest. Broke out of the clouds at Barr camp and the rest of the day was awesome.

I loved being able to hitch a ride down the mountain with my wife and kids.

Definitely a unique experience

Very picturesque, and a straighforward hike if you take the cog railway back down. Unless you would like to share my experience of having an octogenarian run by you at 12,300 feet (or something similar) don't hike up the week before the marathon.

I love Pikes Peak, but Barr Trail has become a bit crazy. I had to stand aside about 20 times to get out of the way of moutain bikers coming down. Jeez. Walked with a friend, and summitted in 7 hours. Going back in late September 2005 and may try the up and down route, the full 26 miles. Stay tuned.
