I plan on hiking the Red Trail in a clockwise direction with stops at the various monuments we pass. There are 45 miles of trails through this park. We will be hiking 7.75 miles of these trails.

I hiked this by myself in August of 2019 and had planned on doing this event in 2020. Due to the pandemic, I never did it. 

Required Items to Bring:

Wear comfortable Clothing Layers and rugged Hiking Boots or Shoes appropriate for the weather - also, showers are forecast bring light emergency rain gear.

Hydrate well prior to the event and we suggest carrying about a liter of Water to drink along the way and perhaps a piece of fruit or other light snack.
