Comments

Rated 2A because of some hills and altitude of 6,412 ft. Trail is along city streets. Bring your walking sticks and enjoy walking through Manitou's historical downtown and residential area on streets and sidewalks. You will have many beautiful vantage points of Manitou Springs and opportunities to window shop the artistically unique retail stores along Manitou Avenue. The trail is rated a 2A, because of some hills and the altitude (6,412 ft). Restrooms are available at the start/finish. Manitou Springs has an European historic style, with several castle structures. At one point, you can see Red Stone Castle high on a hill overlooking the city; it is now a bed and breakfast. Area attractions include: Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Miramont Castle, Cave of the Winds, and the Cliff Dwellings. If you are traveling in the area, we recommend this Magnuson Grand Pikes Peak as a convenient and comfortable place to stay while you enjoy our other walks and the many attractions of the Pike's Peak region.
