Directions from Las Vegas: Travel ten miles west along State Route 159. The trailhead is located at the Red Rock Canyon Visitor Center.
Starts and finishes at the visitor center (which is a great and informative center to visit). Trail markers are just OK so we ended up going a little further than we should have before we turned around and headed up the ridge and back down and around the loop. Ended up at 2.5 miles total. No shade so do this early in the day.
This is an easy trail which starts at the Red Rock Visitor Center. This is a good trail to get an overview of the Red Rock desert environment. It also provides a panoramic view of the Calico Hills, Spring Mountains and La Madre Mountains.
