Up Manitou Springs Incline

This morning I hiked the Manitou Springs Incline. Above is the view from the bottom of the trail.

It was a challenging walk rising in elevation 2,000 feet in less than one mile. The steps are like old boards from a mining track.

Above is a selfie halfway up the stairs. This is the point where a false summit makes you think you're almost there. Whew! I recommend starting in the early morning because mid-day heat would make it hard to carry enough water.

Made it to the top! It feels awesome when you complete the trek up. Bar Trail connects here and goes up Pikes Peak. It's also the best trail to take down.
