Big horn sheep area, canyon views, wooded climbs, well marked trail. This loop trail at Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas, Nevada is a study in contrast. You are always in the Mojave Desert, but it looks markedly different depending on your elevation and the amount of precipitation the area gets. With the White Rock Loop, you see typical desert plants. On the west side of the mountain, hidden from the Scenic Drive, is a hidden forest of juniper and pinyon. It's a great contrast to the barren east side.

Longer than expected with a higher vertical. But never overwhelming. A nice 2.5 hour trek around the mountain.

I was told by other trail runners to run this trail counter-clockwise and the views along the trail will be much prettier. An employee at the visitor center recommended to go clockwise instead. He also told me the trail was not runnable and it was too dangerous to run. He was very nice, but I'm not sure he had much experience with trail running. I went with the advice of others who ran it before and decided to go counter clockwise, and try to run the parts I could. I was very surprised when I got out there. It was definitely runnable, even with snow and ice on the ground. I can understand why others recommended to go counter-clockwise. The views were stunning. Trail shoes are a must - the rocks will eat your feet up. The trail was very easy to follow and never felt like I was lost.
