This is a great trail! It didn't feel that long before you get to the tank (pool of water). On the way up, there will be some rock scrambling required if you stay on the trail. If you feel adventurous, in many parts of the...More

This was my favorite hike in Red Rock. The colors are just beautiful and because it is cooler in the canyon here, much more blooming plants and wildflowers abound. It truly is gorgeous. Minimal crowds compared to Calico Hills. If you only have time for...More

I would argue that this hike was beautiful the entire time! The landscape changes some from the start to the end it's looks different enough going in and coming out to keep things interesting! Most of the trail was easy with some trickier rock scrambling...More

I did this short hike with my twelve year old son and we both loved it. It was a joy to see him enjoying something other than video games😆

This trail has a little of everything: flats, climbs, "stairs", hand-over-hand scrambling. The rewards are the two "tanks" and the view of distant Las Vegas at the end. The trail sometimes splits but rejoins, so just keep proceeding upward. If you come to what looks...More

If you have time for one trail, chose the Calico Tanks Trail. It has a large variety of rocks - red, grey, yellow, white and many types of rock formations. And even though it may be a little challenging conquering some of the rocks along...More

Technically the trail is 'closed' since the parking lot for the trail is under construction. If you get to park by 9am on Sat or Sun where they are not doing the construction, there is room for about 10 cars to park on the road...More

This is one of our favorite hikes in Red Rock Canyon (the other is Ice Box Canyon). Depending on your fitness level, this is a moderate hike. Wear hiking or athletic shoes and take water. Requires some rock scrambling. We only hiked to the tank...More

This is a great hike. Not too difficult to get to the first "tank" and up to the view of the valley to the East. There is a bit of scrambling if you want to go to one of the peaks up higher. Go early...More

Such a wonderful hike! At the beginning the trail is pretty level and easy, but it basically turns into climbing rocks and 'stairs.' Each turn brings views of unique rocks. We had 2 people in their 20's, a 17 year old, and someone in their...More
