Hell Hill serves as the warm up for this grueling summit ascent. The class 3 ridgeline scramble is worth every step. The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada is part of the National Landscape Conservation System. This area helps to preserve the large red rock formations and sandstone peaks known as the Keystone Thrust. Popular for hiking and rock climbing, the highest point is La Madre Mountain, at 8,154 feet (2,485 m). Note: Calico Hills is most often referred to as the grouping of colorful sandstone formations north of the entrance to the Scenic Loop Road. This includes the popular Calico Tanks trail and Redcap Peak.
