My Favorite Short Hikes in Red Rock Canyon


So you only have a few hours and you want to go for a hike. We all know driving the Scenic Loop at Red Rock Canyon takes time, so instead do a hike out of Calico Basin. This will cut the driving time by 75%.
Here are my favorite hikes out of Calico Basin area: (Calico Basin is two miles before the turnoff to Red Rock Canyon)


Kraft Mountain - Up and Down the Backside (2 - 3 hours)
Kraft Mountain Loop - (2 hours)
Turtlehead Jr - Double Slot Route (3 hours)
Calico Tank - Red and White Route (2.5 hours)

All of these are fun scrambling hikes. The Double Slot route to Turtlehead Jr is one of my favorite hikes in Red Rock! Of course, all of these routes can be found in the Members Only section of my web site.

Did you know Google Ads are at best confusing and can be dangerous. Many web site owners place Google Ads in such a way to make you think they are part of the web site. When you click, you are taken to another web site. But it gets worse. Criminals are signing up for Google Ads. When you click on their ads, your computer will get infected or your personal information might be stolen.
Guess what web site does not have Google Ads? Yes, www.hikinglasvegas.com. NO confusing ads and safe.
To be fair Google is working on the problem, but it will be sometime before they can eliminate the unsafe ads.
