Intemann at Iron Mountain to Incline/Pipeline/Ute Trails 6-17-14

We started at Manitou Elementary and hiked up the Intemann trail and along it to Ruxton Ave, then up what we thought was the old Ute trail but may have been the pipeline, back down perhaps the Ute trail onto the Incline and then back Intemann to the school.  Steep in parts, and kind of hot today.  About 5 miles - 90.6 runtotal.
