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.
Our Red Rocks Canyon Hiking tour exceeded all of my expectations! I purchased this tour as a gift for my fiancé to celebrate his 30th birthday with a killer view and we did just that!
Our guide, Brandon, was friendly, down to earth and extremely informative! We learned so much and had a blast!
Our hike was amazing in every way! Kevin was our guide and we felt very fortunate to have him. He was friendly, experienced, engaged and very thoughtful. The hike was moderately difficult, but he never rushed us or made us feel like we were holding things up. It was a perfect afternoon in beautiful surrounding -- highly recommended! Even the ride from the Mirage and the scenic ride through the park going back were wonderful. It couldn't have been better!
