on Calico Tanks Trail

A nice trail with good mix of sandy wash 1st 1/4th of trail and rock scrambling other 3/4th of trail. No water in the watering hole this time of year (mid August) but will definitely return in spring to see water. Beautiful view of LV valley at top of valley.

My 8 year old loved this- plan on going back when the waterfall is there. Easy to follow and you know when you hit the end.... can't go any further.

on Lone Mountain Trail

hiking

Lone Mountain is a great short hike. Good exercise and a nice view. It is mostly hard volcanic rock. There is a neat concrete bench half way up. Nice view from the bench as well as the summit. There is NO shade and normally very hot but the hike is short enough you might be ok if you forget your water bottle. Most young kids can climb this. Ok for dogs too.

scenic driving

I have driven this route a couple of times, and hiked around the area. Each time hoping to see some wild burros, or horses......no luck, but still a nice trail near Vegas. Who knew?

Arrived early, only one other car in the parking lot, happy to find flushing toilets! Nicely maintained trail, clearly marked, no water on trail, but there is drinking water available before you get to the trailhead. Beautiful views at the peak. I found the trail to be easy.
