The following rules and regulations were adopted in the Manitou Incline Site Development and Management Plan (4 MB pdf) to help manage impacts to the surrounding neighborhood and for user safety:
Be respectful of the neighbors who live on Ruxton Avenue. Would you like to be woken up with beeping and slamming of car doors? If you trip in the dark, a First Responder could as well.
No trespassing during partial or full trail closure as indicated by signage at the trail head. This is for your safety and the safety of the crews working to restore the incline.
We love hiking with our pets, but dogs off leash or dogs on long leashes become hazards to other hikers and to themselves. The excessive amount of dog waste that has been left behind is becoming a health issue.
We've all been witness to Colorado's dry season and don't want to put our neighbors at any unnecessary risk.
Please pack out what you've brought with you. If you're feeling generous, please pack out any litter you may come across. Lets keep this jewel beautiful!
Please use Barr Trail (or the new Northern Trail when completed) for your descent.
These rules and regulations were vetted during the master plan process and are required by the property owners. Failure to comply with these regulations could result in permits and agreements being revoked. If you enjoy using the Incline please respect the rules and regulations, other hikers, and the property owners. The Incline is on public and private land.
