The Elk Run trail is located in the Cerro Summit Recreation Area near Montrose, Colorado. The west end of the trail begins off of the Meadow Loop, near the lower parking lot, where it travels around the side of the hill coming to an end at its junction with the Narrow Gauge trail. Enroute it is connected to by the Tuff Canyon, Porcupine and Escalator  trails which all provide routes up the hillside to the upper parking area and trailhead.
