It is named for Zebulon Pike, an explorer who led an expedition to the southern Colorado area in 1806. At 14,115 feet (4302 m), it is one of Colorado's 54 fourteeners. Pikes Peak has been designated a National Historic Landmark.

If flying into Colorado Springs, we would recommend a trip to the summit of Pikes Peak. Pikes Peak is the first Colorado 14er that you will see as you fly into the Springs. The Pikes Peak Highway will take you to the summit. Or, better yet, enjoy a trip on the Cog Railway. The Ranch is a beautiful 80 mile drive west of Pikes Peak. Views of the Peak can be seen from some of your trail rides.
Lost Valley Ranch is located just 1.5 hours from the base of Pikes Peak. The majority of our guests that make the drive to Lost Valley Ranch will include this stop on their way to the ranch or when they depart. Pikes Peak can also be viewed from numerous riding destinations that surround our valley. The staff of Lost Valley Ranch are happy to provide additional information about Pikes Peak upon request.
