Best Of2015: Difficult Hiking Trail

There's no doubt that the Manitou Incline is difficult to conquer. Really difficult. World-class, Olympic-training-level difficult. But really, climbing it is more of a fitness activity than anything else — the only "trail" part of the Incline is found on a return trip down Barr Trail. Regardless, the former railcar route, revamped earlier this year, has a rabid following and has become an iconic attraction for fitness buffs and visitors looking for an elite workout at 6,400 feet. Every hike should have a reward at the end — other than just having done it, of course — and the reward here is a great selfie opportunity at the top. — Hiking Bob Falcone
