Pikes Peak Tollway - Teller County
Aliases: Crystal Creek Reservoir, North Catamount Reservoir, South Catamount Reservoir, Glen Cove
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Although the base and summit of Pikes Peak are in El Paso County, much of the Pikes Peak Tollway actually climbs through Teller County. The dividing line between the two counties runs through Crystal Creek Reservoir, and both South and North Catamount Reservoirs are in Teller County. The area around these reservoirs can be favorable for Northern Goshawk and Cassin's Finch in winter and Red Crossbill in any season. Gray Jay can usually be found up at Glen Cove. Shortly after this point (roughly at the treeline) the tollway crosses back into El Paso County for the ascent to the summit.

Habitat: Spruce-Fir Forest, Reservoir
Directions: Follow US 24 to the town of Cascade; exit left (west) onto the Pikes Peak Tollway ($10 per person).
