Manitou Incline legalized

Postby Jim Davies » Wed Jan 30, 2013 8:49 am

The Manitou Incline will be legal to hike as of dawn Friday, now that the Manitou city council has approved it. Parking and other issues still remain, but it won't be trespassing any more.

Glad I have avoided being arrested all these years.

You just got fined if you got 'caught' (i.e. - if they were out giving tickets). Never happened to me but some friends got tickets.

This is nothing more than legalization of torture. Somewhere in a dark alley, Dick Cheney celebrates.

That sounds like a fun game--trailrunning away from the Incline Police. 8)

haha that's kind of what I always thought. I'm no world class runner but I guarantee I can outrun a police officer in full gear on the incline. (though getting back to your car might be a challenge).

Really? I've been on the Incline at least once a week for a while, and know people who do it almost every day, and I've never heard of any policing or ticketing. Not trying to stir up any trouble, I was just surprised to read your statement.

Yeah it was definitely super rare (I too do it all the time and never once saw it happening). But, I heard about it a few times (like a few times in the past couple of years).

(or maybe my friends are liars...totally possible).

No, but it is a career-defining achievement for our Congressman.
