Daytrip - La Madre Spring Hike

On 03/25/2016 Bob Croke, Jim Herring, Ron Ziance and myself decided to go to Red Rock and hike the La Madre Spring trail. Starting from the Willow Springs parking area we hiked up Rocky Gap Road to the trailhead at the base of the trail that runs a deep canyon that cuts through the La Madre Wilderness Area with the White Sandstone cliffs to the east and the limestone mountains to the west. This arduous, 1,200 foot climb to us to an elevation of 5,474 feet. We hiked a total of 5.47 miles roundtrip. Between all of our rest stops, picture taking, talking and having lunch, it took us about 4-1/2 hours.
