Take A Hike

12 Jan, 2015

Take your hike to the adrenaline pumping extreme on the Manitou Incline, a one-time cable car track that's now a one-mile workout climbing 2,000 vertical feet over age-old railroad ties. Definitely not for the unfit or faint-of-heart, this heart-pounding advanced hike is a favorite of Olympic athletes and assorted Iron Men (and Women). As it's considered one of the most popular Colorado Springs area attractions, the parking area can fill up fast so plan to arrive early and don't be fooled by the relatively gentle grade as you head off from the Cog Railway parking lot alongside locals and your fellow guests of Manitou Springs hotels. Don't forget to bring water, snacks and your iron will. P.S. And if you're new around here, make sure your body is altitude-adjusted.
