Manitou Springs City Council took the last step tonight to approve the legal opening of the Manitou Incline to hikers, beginning Friday, February 1st. It was the final step in a long line of measures needed for the popular trail to gain legal status. According to Incline Friends, a non-profit group devoted to the trail, work such as repairs and maintenance can now begin. Colorado Springs City Council voted in favor of legalization earlier this year.
