Actor Kevin Bacon tackles Colorado's Incline trail in Manitou Springs

MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. - Actor Kevin Bacon hiked the "Incline" in Manitou Springs this week, then posted on Facebook that it almost killed him.

The Incline is an old cable tram car route above Manitou Springs. When trams stopped running on the tracks in 1990, visitors and residents started running the tracks.

It's a short trail, but very steep. Visitors climb about 2,000 feet in 0.75 miles. The trail is so steep that visitors are asked to only hike up the tracks and walk down a different trail.

Bacon posted on Facebook that the record time is 16:42. His time? 54:02.


Note, the Manitou Incline is scheduled to close from August to November for repair work.
