First Wedding on the Incline ???

A little more than a week past Valentine's Day, love sprang eternal on the Incline. Friends said this couple had met on the Incline so just up from the base and to the side of the ties they tied the knot on Saturday, February 23. Yes, of course, the couple and some of the wedding party intended to hike the Incline post-ceremony. If she'd had a bouquet that would've been quite the toss from the top ay?…

Thanks to all of Our "Outlaw" Donors

Incline Diva Jill Suarez (or as she dubbed herself, "The Incline Bunny)" was one of more than a dozen people who ponied up cash to have their picture taken, one more time, with the "No Trespassing" sign that was removed from the Incline for eventual display at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. A lot of hikers took advantage of a beautiful, Spring-like day to climb the Incline which became legally open to the public on February 1, 2013. One couple (see above)…

Expectations of a Trail Work Day

At our recent crew leader training some of us discussed the “patience factor,” i.e. crew leaders don’t want to be waiting around for volunteers to organize, pay attention, etc. and volunteers, since they are giving freely of their time, don’t want that time wasted either. As a volunteer, when you arrive for a trail project you can expect a certain amount of time will be spent organizing you into different crews, familiarizing you with tools and most importantly, reviewing safety…

About Incline Friends

Mission Statement:The Incline Friends group is dedicated to making the Incline sustainable and open to the public.


The Incline Friends would like to clarify something, as there is a lot of misinformation floating around about the Incline. At this point, there are NO current plans to charge to use the Incline. As our mission, the Incline Friends is dedicated to keep the Incline sustainable and OPEN to the public. Because of the heavy use of the Incline, several groups, including the Friends of Ruxton Canyon and the Incline Friends are hard at work, trying to find solutions that will be amiable to all parties affected by the situation, Incline users and Manitou residents alike. One such suggestion has been to charge a fee to use the Incline, but this is no closer to "coming soon" today than it was when the Incline opened in 2013, despite the title of the article out on media today."

Severe Erosion on Hillside 7 Replies

Dear Incline Friends,I am disappointed that the incline was opened over a year ago, with no proper downhill traffic plan.  The signage on the bottom suggests not descending down the incline, but it falls short of guiding the hikers (especially those…Continue
