You might want to start incorporating a work out on a stair climbing machine - preferably one where you have to actually pick your feet up, not just move your legs up and down. This will more accurately train your body for hiking. But the best thing would be to find hills or mountains in your area and train on those, with a back pack on. You'll need to work on your climbing, scrambling, uneven surfaces, and proprioception skills in addition to strength and cardio.

Keep doing that trail! Put on a back pack and do it twice in a row. Then go back the next day and do it again, since you'll be doing that on the inca trail.
