The Manitou Incline Trail

The description may sound daunting: A 2,000 vertical-foot gain in less than a mile. Ok, it is a little daunting—but the trick is to take your time. This mile of steps was converted from a funicular railway that washed out in a rock slide in 1990. Averaging a 24-degree slope, there are a few “false summits” where it looks like you’re about to get to the top only to discover there’s still more to go. Still, the reward for this effort is an incredible view looking out from the foothills over Colorado Springs. Up for the speed challenge? The current record was set in 2015 on 25 September by US mountain running team member Joseph Gray who did it in 17 minutes, 45 seconds. Good Luck.
