Pikes Peak is located in Pikes National Park in Colorado. The mountain is named after Zebulon Pike, an American explorer who attempted to climb the mountain in the autumn of 1806, but failed to reach the top.
The Spanish were the first to discover the peak in the 1700s. It is now both a tourist attraction and the home to the United States Army Pikes Peak Research Laboratory.
