Whether you are looking for a ghostly adventure or the most exhilarating nightscape you could possibly imagine, our specialized night tour is certain to take your breath away!
Your adventure begins with the van ride up Old Stage road, which is an adventure in itself as you are treated to fantastic views of your trail from afar. Along the way, our guide will be happy to point out features and tips that will allow you to have the perfect trip.
If you are doing the full tour, the drop off point is sunset watching at St Peter's dome, situated at 9700 feet with a fantastic view of the city. Afterwards, you will head down the trail as the the darkness gently descends, your bright LED lights allowing you to easily navigate the meandering mountain as you encounter the beauty of the Colorado night.
This trail follows an old rail line built in the late 1800’s. You will traverse through four historic tunnels, and your ride will further be enhanced by the question of whether the tunnels are truly haunted or is it just a local myth? Find out for yourself and experience the only ride in the world like this!

We did the Gold Camp Road tour. WELL WORTH IT! The staff was super friendly and the guide did a great job of taking us down the mountain. We really got to experience the mountains and did some biking. It is all downhill and not to technical (though there were those on the trail doing far more than me) so it is great for any rider. Highlight of our trip! Thanks!
My son and I did the Bike Gold Camp tour. We enjoyed this because it was at our own pace and we could stop when we wanted to hike around. The views are amazing and there are very few other people which is nice. I think it was around 20 miles, but very easy downhill. The staff at the shop were all very nice and well organized. I would recommend this ride.
First time mountain biking and what a blast. Did the Gold Camp Road run. The folks at Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours made it a memorable time. Great equipment, easy to follow directions, and good advise to get the most out of the experience. Easy run. Take some water and a camera and you are ready to go!
We took the tour company's advice and did the Gold Camp ride instead of Pikes Peak and had a blast (even if two of us did wipe out during the ride - trying to go too fast!). The company was easy to work with and had great equipment and tips. We even hired a guide (despite this being a self-guided trip usually). It was worth it. We had a great ride down a beautiful trail. We highly recommend these guys!
We initially wanted to do the pikes peak bike tour but weren't able to do it due to the limited number of people available. We decided to do the bike gold camp self guided tour instead and it was the right decision! We really enjoyed it! The only thing we didn't prepare for was the warm clothes - even with freezing cold weather on top of the mountain with extremely cold wind as we are riding down (only wore a thin sweatshirt), we enjoyed it so much that the cold pain and numbness of our fingers / body were totally worth the experience!! :) if you enjoy mountain biking, we recommend 200%
