I wanted to create something that included the iconic Pikes Peak of Colorado. But not exclusive to just the standard routes (Barr trail) of PP. I also wanted to include, what I believe is, the most well-known peaks in Pike National forest... other than Pikes Peak. That would be Mt Rosa and Almagre Mountain. If you look at the front range from the east those are the big three that stand out next to each other. The route has water holes that mesh with the mileage.
