SEEK AN ALTERNATE INCLINE

Expert's Pick

RED MOUNTAIN

Once again, readers have voted the Manitou Incline a favorite trail — no surprise, considering the camaraderie inspired by the railway-turned-unrelenting stair-stepper. But busy traffic on the trail only shows signs of getting busier, and it's time us locals look elsewhere for our workout. While it's tough to match the burn, one great option is nearby. The Red Mountain trailhead is reached off Ruxton Avenue. And while the well-marked path won't gain you as much elevation in as short a distance as the Incline, 1,000 feet in 2 miles is certainly respectable. And by the way, the views are spectacular.
