Runner Notes

High clearance vehicle needed to TH (or add 1.2 miles one way if coming in from Inspirada Overlook). Takes 7-10 minutes of easy Jeep driving from Inspirada Overlook (Bicentennial Prkwy) Approximately 1.6 miles in on the 100 trail (go clockwise) is one of the largest petroglyph areas in Nevada (right after the last rockfall choke point--easy scramble on all of the "chokepoints"). Just beyond 2 miles (now on the 300 trail), opens into some wonderful high(er) valley country.

Description

This a favorite trail run on the southern edge of Henderson. Especially at the petroglyphs (1.6 miles in) and beyond on the 300 Trail. The 200 Trail (eastern part of the "loop" on the map/track) is a fast and intermediate downhill (or rather steep uphill).

200 Trail, while still easily doable, is no longer "fast" as a downhill. All the rain as of late has made the footing a bit more technical which slows you down. Nov 15, 2015
