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 tour was perfect for our group and the scenery was amazing. Irving did a great job making sure the group was having fun...and we did. We had a great time!
Really enjoyed the hiking trip. Our guide, Irving, did a great job coaching us around the canyon. I'd definitely do the hike again.
The hiking tour was great just the right level of difficulty, beautiful scenery, and our tour guide Irving was very knowledgeable.
We had a great guide who was very knowledgeable taking us on a morning hike to the top of Calico Tanks. He knew everything from the history of the area to rock formations to botany. It was a great hike and and wonderful way to spend a morning. I took my camera and got some great photos along the way.
Excellent tour. Irvin did a great job. Very knowledgeable and set a perfect pace.
