Red Rock Canyon was designated as Nevada's first National Conservation Area. Red Rock Canyon is located 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip on Charleston Boulevard/State Route 159. The area is 195,819 acres and is visited by more than one million people each year. In marked contrast to a town geared to entertainment and gaming, Red Rock offers enticements of a different nature including a 13-mile scenic drive, more than 30 miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking, road biking, picnic areas, nature observing and visitor center with exhibit rooms and a book store. The unique geologic features, plants and animals of Red Rock represent some of the best examples of the Mojave Desert. In 1990, special legislation supported by the Nevada congressional delegation, changed the status of the Red Rock Recreation Lands to a National Conservation Area (NCA), the seventh to be designated nationally. This legislation provides the funding to protect and improve the area. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is enjoyed by the local population as well as visitors from the United States and many foreign countries. One million visitors each year enjoy the spectacular desert landscape, climbing and hiking opportunities, and interpretive programs sponsored by the BLM. The BLM is the largest administrator of public lands in the West. It adheres to the policy of multiple use, thereby providing recreational opportunities, protection for cultural sites, and the management of natural resources, including wildlife.

We did the hike on a Saturday, starting around 3:30pm. Being in October, the sun was already low in the sky and temperatures were perfect. The trail was very quiet. We did it clockwise. The beginning was steep for 25 minutes but once at the top, it is downhill all the way back. There are few areas of scrambling down some boulders but very easy to manage. Most of the hike there is located in a wash bed. The scenery along that part is incredible. Will do it again!!

Went here for my second time hiking. The trail was easy to follow and there are lots of picturesque rock formations and views along the way. The tank was empty when we got there but the overlook view of the whole valley is the real treat!

Beautiful 6 mile hike (not 7 miles)!!

Wish the trail had more markers! We got lost several times. Beautiful scenery nonetheless!

Easy Out And Back

Definitely recommend this hike if you’re looking for a 2.5-3h out and back with some scrambling and beautiful views. Well marked, follow the dots, can be easy to get off trail but everything seems to end up in the same spot. Some loose rock, coming down a little harder than going up. Definitely pack your water and sunscreen. Will definitely put this on our staple hike list.

This is one of my favorite hikes out of Calico Basin. Some other reviewers here have complained about the trail being largely unmarked, which is true; however, the hike is fairly easy to follow if you are familiar with the area and do your research. To be honest, the unmarked and wild nature of the hike is what I love most about it. While unmarked, Ash Canyon is beautiful and pristine; Calico Tanks is well marked and, thus, heavily trafficked, which is why it's turning into a little bit of a dump from graffiti, trash, unnecessary bushwacking, etc.

Down Pine Creek trailhead, take second left down Fire Ecology trail. After turning a corner or two, you'll see a aluminum park table. From the table head left a very short distance, to your right, off the main trail through some brush, head down and follow the carins the whole way. Did not finish. Be back in a week or so to wrap it up. Very beautiful out here. No other hikers on the Gunsight Notch trail. Be careful.
