  • Its less than one mile but its a straight incline! Make sure you bring water and your camera for the top. Lovely views. You can take a gradual hike down the mountain (about 2 miles) down, it’s steep.....  more

  • Hey loves I have to share with you the Manitou Incline. It's one the most popular hiking trails in Colorado to be honest. You gain over 2000 feet in elevation in less than a mile. This is an amazing experience. You will challenge yourself physically and mentally to tackle the elevation gain and the steps but it's worth it. Once you make it to the top you'll enjoy the Beautiful Barr Trail coming down. The fastest time up was a little over 16 min. Come to beautiful Colorado Springs and climb the Manitou incline. You have to go online to the city of Colorado slings and reserve a time slot. It is free and fairly easy to navigate through the website. You all have to this. See you at the Top.
  • An absolutely amazing and rewarding experience. I've done it twice now and both times it was very rewarding to be able to make it to the top. It is definitely a challenge, especially if you don't work out often like me. The views on the way up, from the top, and down the Barr trail are amazing and worth the time spent.
