Daytrip - Oak Creek & Wilson's Pimple Loop Trail

Christmas week, Blake Smith, Robert Croke and I decided to drive out to Red Rock Canyon to hike the Oak Creek trail to Wilson's Pimple. Even though the early weather was discouraging, cloudy and windy, we still managed to have a good hike. This pleasant 3.5-mile R/T hike crosses Red Rock Valley to the base of Mt. Wilson and back. As this hike runs across the desert valley floor, it transverses a variety of desert habitats including Blackbrush Flats, typical Mojave Desert Scrub, and Pinyon-Juniper Woodland. Click here for pictures and description … Ash Creek - Wilson's Pimple Loop Trail.
