Come and hike with Tom on the Gateway Canyon Loop. We will enjoy breathtaking views and amazing scenery including some of the most unique coloring of the Aztec sandstone in Red Rock Canyon NCA. Some call the sandstone on this hike “Candy Cane” due to the unusual markings. This hike has one area where we will ascend about 600 feet in about ½ mile. There will be some light scrambling down dry spillovers.
Registration necessary/limited space. Call (702) 515-5367. Time of hike and meet-up location will be given during registration.
Ages 9+. Bring at least 1 liter of water per person for this hike, use sun protection, wear good hiking shoes, and dress for the weather. Restrooms are located at the Red Spring parking lot. There is no cell service on the trail or in most areas of the Red Rock Canyon. Please no pets on this hike.
