"This short hike, initially following the Intemann Trail, climbs to the summit of 7,361-foot Red Mountain, where you’ll find commanding views of Manitou Springs and Pikes Peak. Red Mountain, a low peak rising above Manitou Springs, offers a great hike to some of the area’s best views. Despite the mountain’s steep slopes, the trail wends to the peak’s 7,361-foot summit with gradual grades that switchback across the steepest slopes. Besides fun hiking and great views, Red Mountain offers a surprise ending—the remains of a restaurant, casino, and summit house of an incline railway." Read more
