If you are looking to get your blood pumping on a real Colorado adventure, search no further than the Manitou Incline. The 1-mile staircase ascends nearly 3,000 steps and gains about 2,000 feet in elevation. Here are 27 snapshots from climbing up and down the mountainside staircase.

Editor's Note: All incliners are now required to make a free reservation prior to climbing. More details here.
