Manitou Incline, Colorado – October 2012

On October 7th, 2012 Steve, Karen, Bill and I hiked Manitou Incline in Manitou Springs, Colorado. Completed in 1907 the Manitou Incline was a 1 mile cable tram built to support the construction of a hydroelectric plant and it’s waterline. After performing this service the railway was then purchased by Dr. Brumbach and turned into a tourist attraction. The incline boasted a 16 minute ride to “scenic splendors”, 10 miles of hiking trails in Mount Manitou Park, and claimed to be the “longest and highest incline on the globe.” Click here for more info.
