A short run out to one of the most significant geological features in Red Rock Canyon.

Description

From the White Rock Loop, head up the singletrack path to the Keystone Thrust. Even though the trail is a mile long, you'll enter the thrust around the 0.75-mile mark. At the thrust, you can easily go off trail to scramble around this ancient rock formation. Continuing to the end of the trail will put you on a ridge overlooking Calico Basin, Turtlehead Peak, and the Keystone Thrust.
