The Manitou Incline is reopening to the public. The Incline closed in August for the second phase of its Trail Enhancement Project.

The goal is to improve the trail's longevity.

Sarah Bryarly works for the City of Colorado Springs and is the Incline Project Manager. She says the construction is necessary due to the amount of visitors on the trail as well as natural degradation.

"Through all of the phases of construction, we are trying to stabilize it and make it as sustainable as possible," says Bryarly.

Bryarly also says efforts are in place to appease parking concerns as well as enforce visiting hours. The start of phase three is yet to be determined.

Effective today, parking in the Barr Trail lot will be only be available through a new reservation system.
