The Intemann Trail before sunrise
Route: Intemann Trail, Red Mountain Trail
With just enough time to get out before a morning flight, I headed up to Red Mountain for a sunrise jog.
The Intemann Trail was smooth sailing with some nice views of the town below. The Red Mountain Trail was more of a single track footpath with some switchbacks and a rugged final ascent to the summit.
The summit had various foundational remains, as well as good views in all directions (including the Incline and Pikes Peak).
