Pikes Peak State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Though Iowa’s Pikes Peak shares its name with the better known 14,110-foot peak in Colorado, Lieutenant Zebulon Pike encountered the grand bluffs rising above the Mississippi River long before he came to know the Rocky Mountains.

In comparison, our Pikes Peak rises a meager 500 feet above the floodplain. However, the view of the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge and the mouth of the Wisconsin River is almost as majestic as its western counterpart. Trails begin at Pikes Peak and travel up and down several forested ravines to Point Ann at the park’s northern tip."
