|Peak Summited||Rocky Mountain|
This hike was actually a last minute decision! I pulled into the parking lot rough at 10;30 and started the ascent. It took me about an hour and a half to get to the top of the Manitou Incline. After that was another 500 elevation increase to get above the tree line and peak the Rocky Mountain!
That took another 40 minutes ( I wasn't pushing it now) .
The decent back was simple because of the four mile trail that winded down the other side of the mountain. I was able to jog the rest of that down and be at the base of the mountain in less than two hours!!
This hike was a lot of fun because I was able to talk to with a large variety of people due to the high volumes for just the Incline.
