As mentioned in the title, I didn't know this challenge existed until a few days ago. I frequent Barr Trail and the Incline and recently met a couple who were looking for the trail that leads to Rocky Mountain. I didn't know it was called that but knew where a trail was that lead to a “rocky” mountain top that was in the general vicinity of where they were looking. A week later, I was in the same exact area and met a woman who asked the same exact question. After giving her the same directions, I enquired more into what this challenge is about. Well, I am all about adventure, so I signed up and ran up to the peak today.
This trail can be a little hard to find/follow (several social trail spurs are around) but if you follow the directions for this hike, you should be ok. The spur trail is approximately .2 miles after the top of the incline and is unmarked. Just keep walking in a westward and inclined direction. The trail you're on will start to descend and bend to the left. It's after the bend that the spur trail will appear on the right. Climb this trail for approximately .3 miles and you'll come to another spur to the left. Take that left and it's only a quarter mile to the summit.
Hope you find it.
