Parking in the Barr Trail lot is now by online, advance reservation only, $20 from midnight to midnight, payable here: https://denverparking.spplus.com/city-of-manitou-springs.html. I can't figure out how this can possibly work, since when you show up, you are not unlikely to find a car parked in your space that did not have a reservation and that has a ticket on the windshield. Parking in the Incline lot is $10 for 4 hours, payable by credit card only at the gate. There is a parking attendant, and if you pull a pack and poles out of your car and look like a hiker instead of a runner, you are likely to get accused of parking in the wrong lot to access the Barr Trail instead of the Incline, and told that after 4 hours your car will be towed.

An Empty Lot?

Someone said that this new system has scared off all the Incline users, and now the lot is mostly empty, maybe 4 or 5 cars in the lot. He reported that you can get a voucher at Barr Camp for a $15 rebate/refund! That doesn't sound so bad if you at least make it to Barr Camp.

Don't know about the voucher

Last Sunday, the Barr lot was pretty empty when I got there around 7 am, and pretty full when I returned around 11 am, with tickets on some of the windshields as I passed through on the way back down to the Incline lot. The Incline lot was over half full when I got back at 11. I went up the Incline and down the Barr Trail on my way to Mt. Manitou.
