Incline Update: October 17, 2017

As of today we are estimated to be 60% complete with our work on The Manitou Incline’s third phase of construction. 24 retaining walls have been completed and we expect to have the remaining 7 in by the end of the week. All 10 water chases are finished. These measures will protect the trail from further erosion.

The entire stair case has been laid out and our next focus will be on installing the metal brackets and cabling that will ensure that steps stay in place for many years to come. Erosion control netting will be flown in on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week (weather permitting).
