Crystal Reservoir on Pikes Peak - America's Mountain


Pikes Peak Highway is pet friendly! There's no better place to bring a dog or puppy than to Pikes Peak, where there are trails, streams and lots of room to frolic in and critters to sniff out! It is strongly recommended that pets remain on a leash so as to avoid getting lost. However, leashes are not mandatory. It's not very often that a dog would have this kind of opportunity for so many new sniffs, sights and sounds.

    Wonderful view!

    We took our 2 year old boxer with us to the peak. He didn't seem to show any signs of labored breathing. However, the top of the mountain was very cold, and there was a lot of construction going on (hence 4 bones instead of 5). There wasnt much to do at the top of the peak other than enjoy the scenery. Dogs are not allowed in the gift shop, so we weren't able to go in together, as one of is had to stay with the dog outside. The views are 100% worth it though!

    Amazing view!

    This was a great stop in Colorado, the view was so incredible. I will say that you do need to watch your dog with the altitude, my dog was fine for the most part but I did notice him getting a bit tired and slowing down while we were at the summit, so I went and sat in the car with him for a bit but he ended up being fine! Dogs are not allowed in the store at the top so you will have to wait outside with them!

    Awesome, but watch the altitude

    We loved our trip to Pike's Peak and the staff loved our dog! The only thing I would caution dog owners about is the altitude, just keep an eye on your dog's breathing on the way up and once you get up there. Our dog did well but just something to keep in mind.

    No swimming allowed

    I don't know if the policy recently changed but dogs are not allowed in the water. We were told the reservoirs are the water supply for Colorado Springs. We were disappointed after making the 1.5 hour drive with our puppy only to be told no swimming.

    If your dog likes swimming...

    what a great place to bring your water loving dogs. I brought my black lab mix Bruno here and it was amazing. he loves when I throw sticks in the lake so he can dive in after it...the scenery is beautiful and you can easily spend a few hours and not even know it. I recommend this if you love the outdoors
