EASY Hike (2.5-3.5 hours) -- Calico Basin -- Difficulty: 1½ (easy) Total Distance: 3-4 miles Hourly Weather - This hike may also be posted with the Las Vegas Trail Seekers Meetup group. Hike starts from Red Springs picnic area at the back of the paved Calico Basin parking lot. The turnoff from H-159 (West Charleston) is one mile before (east of) the Red Rock entrance (see location link below). Calico Basin is NOT part of the official Red Rock loop. You will not pass through any fee gates. This is a relatively "easy" hike with minimal scrambling. It may last up to 3+ hours. This hike is for beginners and for those not interested in the faster pace or longer distance of other hikes. Pace will be set by the group. Adults, children age 12+, and well-behaved dogs (on leash) are welcome. Friendly chat is also welcome but please: no national politics or religion.
