BLUE SKIES INN is located in the foothills of Pikes Peak, at the heart of Colorado recreation, with good access to river rafting, mountain hiking, unusual shopping centers and all of the terrain and sights that characterize the Colorado experience.
Pikes Peak is accessible by trail, road and railroad. Every year on a Saturday in mid-August, thousands of athletes run up Barr Trail from Manitou Springs to the top of the mountain, a thirteen mile run. On Sunday, athletes run up and down Barr Trail for a full Marathon. There is no restriction preventing anyone from running or hiking up Pikes Peak any time of year, but for those of us who are, shall we say, less adventurous, there are other routes to the peak and other attractions that surround the mountain.
