Crystal Creek Reservoir

When trying to access Pikes Peak, there are two options:  railway or highway.  We took the highway option, which afforded us the opportunity to take in the view at Crystal Creek Reservoir.

Located past mile 6 on the 19.5 mile climb up Pikes Peak, and managed by the city of Colorado Springs, it is one of the major sources of water for area residents.  Because of this, swimming and other related water sports are not allowed; however, visitors may fish, picnic, and, most importantly, enjoy the amazing scenery!
