  3. Ask hikers to name a trail that begins in Manitou Springs, and most will probably say Barr Trail, the popular path that takes hikers to the summit of 14,115-foot Pikes Peak. Locals, however, might name a smaller, less famous trail that has been a labor of love for volunteer trail builders since 1987.

  7. Probably the most revered (and feared) trail in the Pikes Peak region, the Incline is also one of the most popular. Gaining 2,000 feet in 3/4ths of a mile, it follows the old rail bed of the Incline Railroad, a popular tourist attraction until it was closed by a rock slide in 1990.
