Almost 3,000 thigh-burning steps are back open to the public as the Manitou Incline welcomes climbers back by reservation only. Users are asked to make a free online reservation before hiking and bring proof of that reservation to show an onsite attendant.

The Incline has been closed since March 17 in response to COVID-19. Reservations will initially allow 35 people every 30 minutes. Face masks are required in Manitou Springs and will be required on the incline.
