OK, but lots of people going down from the Incline. Beautiful views over to Cameron's Cone, and Gog & Magog Rocks!

Walked down 4 miles of this trail from the false summit of the incline late April 2016. Beautiful wintery walk. The scenery is spectacular. It was snowing but hike down was easy breezy compared to incline on way up.

We hiked this first try to challenged ourselves and gauge how much work we have left before we attempt to hike all of pikes peak. We have a lot of work to do!! So much fun and very beautiful. Parking is $20 and frustrating though.

Done this trail three times. Very scenic. There's a detour you can take that takes you down to a river. Recommend you going down there. There's some nice rivers and giant boulders. Went there 3 weeks ago and the construction on the incline had the eagles nest blocked off. Which is unfortunate. But definitely still worth the climb.
