Likely In-Season!
Barr Trail, named after its builder, Fred Barr was constructed from 1914 to 1921. The trail passes through three ecological life zones: Montane, Spruce-fir, and Alpine. Wildlife species common to those zones are frequently observed. Pikes Peak has been a landmark since before recorded history. It was named for Zebulon Pike who described the Peak in 1806 while exploring in the area to the south. The first recorded climb to the summit was in 1820 by Dr. Edwin James of the Stephen H. Long Expedition. At present, over 150,000 visitors per year are estimated to climb the peak on the Barr Trail.

An open shelter is located about 9 miles up the trail just below timberline. Campfires may be built at this site. Barr Camp is another popular overnight camping or lodging spot operated under a special use permit with US Forest Service. A charge is made for use of the facilities.
