Name: Red Rock Shadow of Mt. Wilson
Total distance: 3.5 miles
Total time to complete: 2 hours
Elevation Change: 700 feet
How easy to follow? obvious but unmarked trails
Dogs: yes, some rounded rocks on trail at overlook but most trail is soft sand. Rocks are near end so those with dogs are welcome to turn around.
Trailhead (36.081307, -115.448037) is the dirt shoulder of the west side of Route 159 marked “First Creek” BETWEEN Oak Creek and Spring Mountain Ranch.
After 6pm this hike is completely in the shade the whole way! This is a dirt path starting out at the normal First Creek trailhead. We will branch off toward Oak Creek on the Valley trail and follow an old jeep trail that leads directly under the shadow of Mt. Wilson.
