If you want to get those steps in on your next adventure, we've found the ideal destination. Manitou Incline in Colorado is made up of over 2,700 steps, with a breathtaking view from the top served with a remarkable sense of accomplishment. You'll be sharing that workout on your story once you crest the peak for some bragging rights.\nOnce used as a cable car to transfer pipeline materials to the top of Pike's Peak, the trail eventually switched to a tourist destination.\nManitou Incline in Manitou Springs, Colorado, used to house railroad tracks, but after a rockslide damaged a large portion of the rails, they were taken out, leaving behind the ties.\nThose are now used by hikers seeking a more challenging workout, and you can join in on all the cardio fun.\nThe 2,744 steps quickly gain a 2,000-foot elevation and include about a mile's worth of high-intensity climbing.\nHey, we never said this adventure was going to be easy. But the exercise high mixed with the view will be worth it.\nThe hike is free to enjoy, and the trip back down is via a different path known as Barr Trail.\nView this post on Instagram We are happiest when we are growing🌱 . I believe to “live our best life” we must focus on growth. That can be in any area..physical, spiritual, mental, relationships...anddd at any measure... big steps, small steps, leaps, crawlingggg.. it does not matter as long as it’s progress . There’s been times I have made the mistake on skipping ahead to focusing solely on the result without remembering to apply what I’ve learned along the way and to remember that a step no matter the size is what matters most . Even if these 2,800 steps at a 7,500 elevation was something that you couldn’t tackle in your first try (i almost got too dizzy and passed out🥴😅) .. I guarantee you if you kept at it and went up 1, 8, 30, 100, 500 however many more steps every time you attempted it, then you would feel proud, confident, accomplished, joyous.. and happy. NOW apply that to anyyyy area of your life and take it oneee step, day, meal, mile, book, workout or even moment at a time and focus on growth...focus on the journey. And remember it’s not about perfection only about progress💕 A post shared by Brooke•Stokes (@b__stoked) on Apr 24, 2020 at 7:57am PDT\nYou can start your journey any day of the week from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m., from April 1 to October 31, and 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. from November 1 to March 31.
