Steel yourself for beautiful views and light traffic - this a perfect getaway journey.

Overview

This trail is good for some variety in terrain and scenery. There's very light traffic compared to some other trails in RRC.
Features: Views

Need to Know

There's a bathroom at the start/finish, but no water.

Runner Notes

Much of the first half of the trail is on a double track with big gravel instead of packed. Not the most fun part of the route, but challenging.

Description

Obviously, you can run this either direction. Going counterclockwise starts you off going downhill on doubletrack with pretty good footing. A nice warm-up for the climb to come.

The middle two miles are probably the toughest because it's uphill on gravel and not as scenic.

The final two miles are the payoff-very scenic, fun switching back and forth on a packed trail, and you finish on a downhill.

Great easy running. The incline is easily manageable and fully runnable. Ran clockwise. Watch out for trail side cactus. 6.3mi

Really good run. I recommend doing it going the other direction. I think it's safer and easier that way Feb 10, 2017
I ran it counterclockwise from the White Rock trailhead to the Willow Springs area. That got the climbing over quick and the rest was nearly all downhill. Very few people on the trail, in contrast the other trails in Red Rocks Canyon. Great trail with awesome views. Mar 29, 2017
