Pikes Peak (originally Pike's Peak) is a mountain in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, 10 miles (16 km) west of Colorado Springs, Colorado, in El Paso County in the United States of America.
Originally called "El Capitan" by Spanish settlers, the mountain was renamed Pike's Peak after Zebulon Pike Jr., an explorer who led an expedition to the southern Colorado area in 1806. At 14,115 feet (4,302 m), it is one of Colorado's 54 fourteeners (mountains that rise more than 14,000 feet (4,267.2 m) above mean sea level). Pikes Peak rises over 8,000 feet above the city of Colorado Springs, and is a designated National Historic Landmark.
