Red Rock Canyon (Calico Hills) (4,270')

While visiting Vegas, I ducked out to the mountains for a morning hike in the Calico Hills in Red Rock Canyon Park.

The terrain was not what I expected, and the temperature was much more pleasant than in the valley. It was a combo of gravel, soft sand, and rock scrambling. Very pretty.

I pieced together a few trails from the Calico II trailhead up to Calico tanks and bank. All in it was about 5 miles and ~1K of elevation gain.
