The Manitou Incline

The Manitou Incline is a challenging hike that has become a must-do for fitness enthusiasts visiting Colorado. The trail is located in Manitou Springs and consists of 2,744 steps that ascend 2,000 feet in just under a mile. Hikers are rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding mountains, including Pikes Peak, and the surrounding area. The trail has a rich history and was originally built as a cable car to transport materials up the mountain for the construction of pipelines in the early 1900s. Today, the Manitou Incline has been converted into a popular hiking trail that provides a unique workout experience. Hikers should come prepared with plenty of water and a good pair of shoes as the trail is steep and rocky.
