Description

The uncrowded Mud Spring Canyon is tucked into the gap south of Black Velvet and north of Windy Canyon. It contains mostly traditional climbs that still have a bit of a remote feel to them.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

This area can be approached from the Black Velvet parking area. Follow the old dirt road west to the the point where the Black Velvet trail departs for the canyon. At this point, turn left and follow the road south until you can contour southwest on trail fragments and cross-country stretches until reaching the streambed near the canyon mouth. The canyon can also be reached from a turnout early on the Windy Canyon approach road, but the walking is generally tougher this way.
