Calico Tanks Hike

EP-P1000437This past Thursday I hiked to the Calico Tanks in Red Rock Canyon. The trailhead for this fairly strenuous, 1.2-mile hike is located at the Sandstone Quarry parking area. The hike runs up a canyon and over sandstone slickrock to a large natural depression (a "tank" or "tinaja") near the top of the Calico Hills ridge. Beyond the tank there are great views of Calico Basin and the Las Vegas Valley. Click here for pictures and a description of this hike ...Calico Tanks.
