Thanks Paul Intemann!

Definitely not easy. Too many inclines. Several very steep. Beautiful walk though.

We park in Maintou and walk up Ruxton until we get to Spring street to the left (east), before the cog railway parking. This trail is connected to others worth exploring. The history of this trail and mountain, as well as the views you get from each part of the trail make this a favorite for an afternoon hike.

Great easy hike. We did a Haunted Hike to the Crystal Valley Cemetery with the UpaDowna adventure club.

My first mountain to climb. Loved it, went off on some side trail towards the end of my assent. Way more difficult than if I just climbed going around via the 'original' more traveled trail. Where I went 'wrong', was I stayed to the left more than the right!

Park at memorial park and take the shuttle, we walked back to MP so we could walk Manitou

Great Views!

Didn't actually get to hike the trail, as usual it was impossible to (even on a weekday) find paid parking on the street during the summer and no parking is allowed at the trailhead. I think it was right next to the Cog Railway so will have to try again either very early in the day or just wait for all of the tourists to leave during the summer season. UPDATE 11/4/17: Got to actually do this trail today. Parked in the free lot in Manitou off of Old Man's Trail and took the free shuttle to the Cog Railway/Incline stop. A quick easy trail with some slight inclines and nice views of Manitou Springs. We decided to take the neighborhood streets back to the parking lot which was a nice way to see some of the cute houses in Manitou. I would assume once the Incline trail opens up again it might be hard to find parking...
