  • This location is shown only to members

This hike is rated INTERMEDIATE.

This time we'll explore the Mesquite Canyon Trail in the White Tanks Mountains Regional Park. This is a remote and ruggedly beautiful preserve with great views and terrific hiking. Our route will go up the Mesquite Canyon Trail approximately two miles and will return by the same route. We'll stop along the way and take a longer break at our turn-around point. The trail is well-marked but is steep with loose footing in a few sections. You're encouraged to bring snacks, sun protection of some sort and must bring at least 2+ liter of water per person and sturdy hiking footwear.

DISTANCE: 4.0 miles roundtrip
ELEVATION GAIN: 500 ft
TRAIL STYLE: In-and-out
DURATION: 2 hours
DOGS: Yes, if leashed.
FACILITIES: Bathroom and water fountain
WEBSITE: Trailmap

CARPOOL LOCATION: For those wishing to share in the $6 per vehicle entry fee, we'll meet at the White Tank Library parking lot outside the park at 8:40. You'll find me driving a silver Prius with a roof rack.

DIRECTIONS TO TRAILHEAD: Take Olive Ave. west from the 101 to White Tanks Regional Park. There is a $6.00 per vehicle entry fee for the park. We'll meet at 9:00 in parking area #7 as shown on this closeup map, the Mesquite Canyon trail head.
