Trail is closed until Dec 2016 for maintenance, but the Barr trail is open.

Absolutely love doing this hike on the weekends!

The incline is HARD, but rewarding. I still can't believe I did it, and I live at sea level. Get there early, and bring plenty of water. Lots of camaraderie on the way up. The Barr Trail hike coming down is awesomely beautiful.

Very very hard in high traffic periods but oh so rewarding

July hike-Feels great to make it to the top---it's intense. I was a little taken aback with the crowds. I went a 6:00AM and there were tons of people. Be prepared to park downtown and walking a lot to get to the incline--I didn't mind that but was surprised at how far out I had to park! The crowds were irritating at first but then I made it fun and it was interesting to see all the types giving this one a go. It can get very warm--early morning start if a summer day is my suggestion--be prepared-sunscreen, hat, shoes with good tread, WATER. The hike down is gorgeous-loved it!

Super hard but totally worth it! I only made it up to the trail then took Barr Trail down. The view once you get up there though is magnificent!

Very unique climb, straight up with lots of camaraderie with other Incliners. More of a "workout" than "hike", but coming down Barr trail is nice too.

Bummed that it was closed for maintenance! Did this hike a several months ago and it was a good, grueling workout.

I have hiked this trail once s month for two years. In winter crampons are a must!

It's hard but worth it. When it opens back up we will be back.

September 16, 2016. This trail is under construction until dec 2016. closed to public. Looks awesome though and was bummed!

I'm from sea level but I've been in Colorado a couple months now. I'm definitely not in the best shape and I'm working on getting my heart in better condition. It did take me a very long time because of that, BUT I did it and I wouldn't change that! It was hard as hell, but I had such a feeling of accomplishment after doing it. I think everyone should do it at least once.
