Trail shared by Karl W

A short path to a few interesting rock formations that make for a fun, short scrambling trip.

Features Views · Wildlife

Family Friendly This route is a short way to enjoy the views, especially if you're staying at the campground. Use caution with youngsters and the rock formations.

Description

The trailhead is on the right-hand side of the road shortly before the Red Rocks Campground. The trail is very short and flat along a nicely maintained trail. The trail disperses near the rocks themselves as people are able to leave the trail to play on the rocks. You can climb around or just enjoy the rocks from below before heading back. Be safe though!
