Manitou Incline

The Incline is a popular spot here in Southern Colorado. It's considered one of the hardest hikes around. It's a mile up a mountain, climbing stairs that are made out of wood. The stairs start at an easy pace but towards the end you can find yourself using your hands to help you climb! It's definitely a difficult hike, and is used by a lot of the soldiers here to train. When we went, there were people of all ages and fitness levels. You don't have to be in total shape to do this hike, but it will take you a lot longer. Between the elevation gain and the fact that you're going up steep stairs for a mile, it's common to take small breaks. 
I was worried at first that I wasn't nearly in shape enough for this hike, but Zach encouraged me to take my time and our group made it up the Incline! :)
