Meet at the picnic area by 8:00 am. We will be on the trail no later than 8:05. I will arrive around 7:45.
There are various trails that follow the base of the Calico Hills from the picnic area. I don't have a set plan other than to do about 3 miles going to Ash Meadows and back. Its a very scenic area and there is a potential to see some wildlife.
The purpose is to get out for an easy hike and encourage new members to get out for perhaps their first hike. All our welcome to attend.
This is easy hiking, but its not a walk in the park. It will be more strenuous than walking in the city or on pavement. If you are not used to that, it may not seem easy.. but still this is about as easy as hiking gets in Red Rock Canyon. There won't be any rock scrambling. The trails are fairly easy going, but there are parts where they will be rocky and uneven. Still the elevation gain is minimal.. this is mostly a flat hike.
No scenic loop to drive!!
Bring enough water for yourself. Its getting warm. Pace will be relaxed. No one left behind. No rush. We will take plenty of rest breaks and will still be done well before lunch time.
Bring a good attitude and no whining on my hikes!
I am not a guide, but happy to lead the way and will do everything I can to make this a safe and enjoyable experience for you.
Any questions, concerns, or comments, please don't hesitate to text me at[masked]-4767.
