Description

This trail starts where the Village Walk Trail ends. Stay left here to run the Red Rocks Trail. When you arrive at the first paved road you'll be at the intersection of two roads in Red Rocks Park. Look straight across from you to a small roadside parking area, Red Rocks Trail picks back up here.

Not much further down the trail you'll reach another intersection, turn left here and cross the road, the trail picks up on the other side. When you arrive at another road this portion of the trail ends. There are other trails within Red Rocks park you can connect to by using the roads.

Half the trail is downhill and half is an incline. Incline is challenging to run.
