Hiking
Any Mountain, Any Trail

There are tons of places to hike and enjoy the outdoors while you're in town!

A Few Hiking Tips:
+ Don't hike alone.
+ Always bring plenty of water and snacks.
+ Start your hike early and keep an eye on the sky -- afternoon storms are likely and move in quickly.
+ The altitude is REAL. Go slow and don't be afraid to turn around to avoid altitude sickness.
+ Make sure someone that's not in your hiking group knows where you are and when you start your hike.
+ Lock your car and make sure your keys aren't in it!
+ Manitou Springs Incline is recommended for those in physically fit shape. It's very steep and difficult.
