Rueter-Hess Recreation

Incline Trail (Rueter-Hess)

The Incline Challenge features 132 steps, and the Rosie Rueter Trail loop that leads to and from the parking lot is just over a mile long. The incline offers 232 feet of elevation and a spectacular view of Longs Peak to the north and Pikes Peak to the south.  Pavilions, an observation deck and more are scheduled to open soon.

The Incline Challenge is open daily from sunrise to sunset. Reservations are not required for the Incline Challenge and trails.

Located immediately west of the Rueter-Hess Water Purification Facility, a parking lot has been designated for visitors at the bottom of the Incline. Visitors should turn west off of Heirloom Parkway when they reach the Rueter-Hess Water Purification Facility, and continue west to the designated Incline parking area. The Rosie Rueter Trail loop is just over a mile long and leads to and from the parking lot.
