10. Pikes Peak, Pike National Forest
This happens to be one of the Southwest’s famous “fourteeners,” a reference to mountains that stand over 14,000 feet. More precisely, Pikes Peak stands at 14,115 feet, which makes it worthy of the title. The nearby town of Colorado Springs offers recognizable views of the snow-capped peak, which is easily one of the best places to visit in Colorado. And we bet you didn’t know this is one of the most visited mountains in the world, second only to Japan’s Mt. Fuji.
