Trail shared by Rob Erekson

An absolutely brutal run with amazing views on top.

Features Views

Most easily accessed via Rocky Gap Rd via Red Rock Canyon, which is only accessible during park hours and requires payment with a daily or annual pass.

Runner Notes

Don't expect to actually run much. This is mostly a power hike.

Description

This trail, which is known locally as Giant's Mile, goes straight up the backside of the Red Rock Escarpment, weaving through fauna and over sandstone outcroppings.
