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.
Irving was a superb guide. Thoughtful and exuberant- that means pretty cool guy!
Super tour guide Irving - really knows the area and geared the hike towards the group's ability. Beautiful scenery and a great way to enjoy the day outside of Las Vegas.
Irving was a terrific tour guide. The views were spectacular. Getting off the strip was great. We enjoyed our time and would recommend
Great tour. The leader was very knowledgable and so nice.
A wonderful way to unwind after a few days in Vegas. Our guide Irving was a thoroughly pleasant fellow and his knowledge of the local flora and fauna was excellent. The hike itself was fun, not too strenuous yet got the blood moving nicely as we twisted up through canyons and hills. The views of Las Vegas and the valley from the top of the hike are fantastic. A highly recommended way to enjoy another part of this majestic area.
I just had a few hours for this hike and it worked out perfectly. It was a lot of fun, great guide, good company all around.
Great way to leave the city and hike the canyon. Our guide, Irving, was engaged and accommodating.
