Celebrate the season with the Santa-worthy scenery of Candy Cane Canyon (aka Gateway Canyon). Join guides on a beautiful winter hike through one of Red Rock Canyon’s hidden gems, tucked at the back of Calico Basin. Learn about geology and wildlife from interpretive naturalists. This trail is rated moderate/strenuous, and we will be covering a distance of about 3.4 miles. The hike begins with a relatively steep incline, then proceeds gradually downhill most of the way. The trail follows a wash, with hiking over loose rock and some scrambling down boulders. We will adjust our pace as needed to hike safely, clear obstacles, rest, and enjoy the scenery.
No admissions fee required for this Calico Basin program. Registration necessary/limited space. Call (702) 515-5367. Time of hike and meet up location will be given during registration. Ages 12+. Bring plenty of water, dress for the weather, and wear good hiking shoes.
