Red Rocks’s Nevada (officially Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area) has long been one of our favorite climbing destinations. Where else can you find five star moderate 10-pitch rock climbs a short hike from the trailhead? We usually take two trips a year to this sandstone wonderland. But it wasn’t until a couple years ago that we started to realize the fantastic trail running potential beneath The Escarpment. The next time you’re taking a rest day from crags (it’s hard, we know), check out the 6.5-mile White Rock Loop or the appropriately named 12-mile Grand Circle. Running the slickrock of Calico Hills is also a blast. We now find ourselves looking forward to running in Red Rocks as much as climbing. And don’t get us started on the mountain bike trails….
