Manitou Scenic Incline Railway
"No longer used -Built in 1907. Cable car took people up the eastern face of Rocky Mountain to about 8,600 feet. Shut down in 1990. The steepest section is at a grade of 68% with the average grade just over 40%. Today hikers climb (run) up the road where the cable car used to be"- even though they are not supposed to trespass on it.
