Athletic challenge with a view Jul 12, 2011
The Incline is an unofficial trail that runs about 2 miles strait up the mountain next to the official Barr Trail. This tortuous little trail is what is left of an old rail car ride that shut down some years ago. Today people hike up the track ties that remain of the forgotten ride for exercise or just to say they did it. The hike will be as challenging as you like based on your pace but it will never be easy! The views are beautiful and the people are nice enough if they are not preoccupied with the challenge. Most people opt to come back down by Barr trail as the average exhausted set of legs will not be up to safely coming back down the steep angle and varied footing. I attached a picture but trust me it does it no justice. If your idea of a guilty pleasure is a somewhat masochistic physical challenge then I am sure you will enjoy the Incline. Have fun!
