The popular - and steep - Manitou Incline is set to reopen Friday, Dec. 2nd.

The Incline has been closed for the last three months for repair work.

The city of Colorado Springs says work included repairs to retaining walls, new drainage structures, and stabilizing ties and slopes.

The mile-long trail rises 2,000 vertical feet. The average grade of the Incline is 43 percent; at its steepest, it's a lung-busting 68 percent.
