Trail Running Red Rocks Nevada


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….
