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.
