So, you were thinking about hiking the Barr Trail or the Incline next week!
Ha! I am here to crush your dreams. Listen, if you thought it was hard parking at the top of Ruxton Avenue on a regular day, you don't even want to know what a hellhole that tight little space is going to be next week.
According to the City of Manitou Springs:
The Barr Trail Parking Lot located off of Ruxton Avenue at the top of Hydro Street will be closed Monday, April 25 through Friday, April 29, 2011. The City will be making improvements to the lot during that week, including paving.
Violators parking in the lot while it is closed or parking illegally will be towed at the owner’s expense.
My suggestion: Stay away. It's not worth the grief.
