RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


Follow a good trail towards Angel Food Wall. A climbers trail cuts right near where the stream below the wall intersects with the one coming down from the spring. The approach is an easy 30 minutes.

Getting There 

White Rock Spring is a trailhead on the loop road a couple of miles past the Sandstone Quarry and is accessed by a short dirt road on the right.
