Our Judges say:

I feel I could get obsessed with this hill.

Anna Paxton

The Manitou Incline, or simply “The Incline”, is one of Colorado’s most famous hiking trails. Gaining over 2000ft of elevation in less than a mile, the trail is the remains of a decommissioned funicular railway. Famous for its sweeping views and steep grade the Incline has in recent years become a focal point for an eccentric, off-kilter community. “Inclined”, dives into this community and explores how a one-mile section of trail has managed to bring people together from all walks of life.
