PIKES PEAK — Heads up if you're planning a trip up America's Mountain.

The old summit house at the top of the peak is now closed.

That means there are currently no public bathrooms available at the summit.

Construction continues on the new summit house but it's not ready as of yet.

The manager of Pikes Peak said visitors should be prepared for an enjoyable but brief trip to the top of the mountain.

"We want those people to really check the weather conditions. Make sure that no adverse weather is projected. It really moves on the summit quite quickly. Be prepared to hike down," Jack Jalvan said.

The new summit house is expected to open this coming spring.
