    Carrying on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway

    Is it legal to carry on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway and at the visitors center at the top of the mountain?

    The visitors center at the top isn't run by the National Park Service, is it?

    The visitor's center at the top is run by Aramark ( a concessionaire)

    Pikes Peak is part of Pike National Forrest and (unlike Denver) is located in Colorado a fairly gun friendly state

    Packin' on Pikes Peak and Mt Evans is OK. (No TSA for the Cog.)

    If you want to spend more time at the top, try driving up. (White knuckles for many.) I think it cost $10.00 per car. Use low gear going back down. They stop every car about half way down and check brake temps. If your brakes are too hot, you have to pull over and let them cool. There is a concession stand to take your $$ while you wait.
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    I remember going to the top of Pikes Peak when I was like 12 or 13 with my folks. I thought it was a good adventure. I must say my dad handled the drive pretty well as I recall. That was about 36 years ago.

    wife and I did the cog railway 3 weekends ago. Carried the whole way. Not too many places in CO that are carry forbidden.
