Event Details

How much of the natural world do we miss only hiking during the day? Just like us, many of the Mojave Desert’s inhabitants don’t like being out in the midday sun! Join a Bureau of Land Management ranger at the Willow Spring Picnic Area for a two-hour guided hike to learn about the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area’s nocturnal inhabitants as the sun sets behind the Wilson Cliffs. Wildlife is not guaranteed, but the scenery is always spectacular.

This easy hike will be approximately 2.1 miles (3.3 km) in length and gain about 200 ft (63 m) of elevation. The trail is moderately rocky, so it is not recommended for individuals with mobility difficulties. However, beginners are welcome!
