I have alway felt Red Rock is more of a full body workout than Charleston, but it beats you up more.
Charleston is a better cardio workout, since it's at elevation and the hikes are longer.
From talking with hikers and polls on my website, most hikers prefer Red Rock hikes.
Do you have a preference and why? Leave a comment.
