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.
