Manitou Springs Hiking Trails

Manitou Springs hiking is a great way to take in the beautiful scenery at this quaint mountain town nestled at the foot of Pikes Peak. The difficult Manitou Incline and Barr Trail are tough workouts and great ways to take in the refreshing mountain air and achieve a great sense of accomplishment.


  1. Barr Trail is the 12+ mile (one-way) hike gaining 7,800 vertical feet from Manitou Springs to the 14,115-foot summit of Pikes Peak-America’s Mountain.
  2. Manitou Incline, located in west Manitou Springs, is a difficult hike up what used to be cable car ties. With a gain of almost 2,000 feet of elevation in about one mile, this hiking trail is one tough workout.
  3. Catamount Trail is located west of Manitou Springs off Highway 24 in a town called Green Mountain Falls. It's a six-mile round-trip hike that is moderately difficult.
