第二段從Echo Lake到山頂的14哩長的5號道路,從每年的Memorial day 開放到Labor day,但若天候不良如大雪、強風、路面結冰等狀況下,縱使是夏天,5號道路也是封閉或只開放到 Summit lake(距山頂上有5哩路)

19世紀末丹佛和科泉市( Colorado Springs)在觀光上競爭,以吸引東部的遊客。1888年科泉市完成直達Pikes Peak山頂的長達16哩道路後,從丹佛地區吸引大量旅客,促使丹佛市長Speer提議興建通達 Mount Evans山頂的道路。該道路開始興建於1917年,而於1927年完成。目前該道路從收費站到山頂停車場(14130)14哩路都已鋪設柏油路面,是北美最高的已鋪設路面的汽車道路。
