Fossil Ridge Trail Fitness Hike

October 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-7

Please note, our articles may contain referral or affiliate links.

Fossil Ridge is an easy to follow trail hike located across from Red Rock Canyon. This is a short relatively easy hike that will recharge your batteries and give you a healthy dose of the outdoors.

Follow West Charleston past the entrance to Red Rock Canyon. The parking lot is located on the left hand side (or east side) of the road at Cowboy Trails.


• Distance: About 4 miles

• Elevation gain: 800 Feet

• Difficulty: Moderate

• Time to hike: 2 hours

We will be hiking up the canyon for about an hour and back the same way for about an hour. You can hike at your own pace, whether it’s fast or slow. We will pick up slower hikers on the way back. The goal is to get the heart rate up and break a sweat.

**Bring a headlamp or small flashlight.**

**Dress in layers, bring a hat and gloves.**

This is a great hike for fit, friendly dogs.
