This is a project I'm working on to collect my favorite running trails around Las Vegas. Right now it's only the west side of town and mostly the Red Rock Canyon area because that's where I run. I will expand the map as I get more trail info. Send me your favorite trails if you want to help with this project. You can find me on instagram @ottoseth or twitter @sethotto.

Red Rock Canyon

To The Duck

This includes the hardest climb I know of in Las Vegas, the segment called Giant's Mile, 1500 ft of elevation gain in 1 mile.

Moenkopi Rd

Kevin's Four and a Half

Medium difficulty run that gives you a taste of the desert, some rocks, some hills, some technical switchbacks.

Mt Charleston

Charleston Summit Loop

If you’re in Vegas and want a reminder of what mountains feel like go to Mt Charleston. It’s only a 45 minute drive but it feels like a different world.

Bomb Voyage to Boneshaker

Fun, sharp, 90 minute run with great views overlooking Vegas and fast crazy downhill.

Easy 5 miles with great views of everything the area has to offer. My normal Saturday morning sunrise cruise.

Bear's Best

Bear's 22

Nice 22 mile training run, not too technical, not too steep, easy cruise with views from the west side of Las Vegas.

Calico Basin / Red Rock

Grand Circle from Calico Basin

This is the classic Red Rock route touring everything the area has to offer, with a little adjustment to the starting position.

Grateful 8

Grateful for a ruggedly beautiful 8 mile run with good climbing up Bomb Voyage, nice views of Las Vegas from the overlook and an easy cruise down Fossil Canyon. You'll need the map for this one, there are some tricky intersections.
