What You Can Expect
Calico Hills: this trail runs along the base of the Calico Rocks from Calico Basin to Sandstone Quarry. Distance is variable since the trail can be accessed at either end or from either of the two Calico parking areas. A side trail runs from the fee booth parking lot and connects with this trail. Hiking distance is 2.5-miles (4 km). Rating: easy to moderate.
White Rock to Willow Springs: your guide will take the trail on the west side to the point where it splits. The trail to the right descends to a guzzler (man-made water hole). The trail to the left heads downhill and through a wash, then climbs over a ridge and drops you into the Lost Creek area. From there, it is only a short distance to Willow Springs. Starting from Willow Springs, just reverse the previous instructions. Hiking distance is 4.4 miles (7.8 km) roundtrip. Rating: easy to moderate.
Ice Box Canyon: This trail heads down across the wash and up the other side toward the canyon. The trail is well defined as it leads you up the side of the canyon for approximately 1/4 of a mile (0.4 km). It then drops into the bottom of the canyon. From this point, the trail becomes a route over and around boulders as it continues upstream. The official trail ends at the large ponderosa pine tree in the bottom of the canyon which is 2.5-miles roundtrip (4 km). To reach the upper pool, which is filled by seasonal waterfall, be prepared for some tricky wall scrambling and a 3-mile (4.8 km) roundtrip. Rating: moderately strenuous.
We had an amazing time on our hiking tour. Our guide was great, we stopped to look at all kinds of things along the way and found him very knowledgeabe about the area and surroundings. Sorry I can't remember his name but hope we get to hike with him when we come down again. We plan on doing a different hike the next time taking us up to a higher elevation level. Looking forward to some amazing views and his excellent guiding. He gave us all kinds of Vegas tips on our way back into town as well. Great guy, great morning and a wonderful way to spend some out of town time while in Vegas. I would highly recommend this company and this tour.
This hike is well worth the money! It's a great chance to leave the city and get some fresh air and a different perspective of the Las Vegas strip. Beautiful views of the canyon and the surrounding area. The guide was personable and very accommodating when my husband, whom was also booked for the hike, got sick during the night previous to the hike. Brandon rebooked us to another day and we both got to enjoy this great hike.
A note to any future hikers - wear proper hiking shoes. I was wearing regular running shoes and I was slipping on some of the rocks that had the fine sand of the area on them. Trail shoes or hiking shoes are your best bet.
