Today we went for a nice hike out near Red Rock. We took a 2 mile out and back trip with more the 500 feet in elevation gain, Calico Basin seems to be a good spot for rock climbers, we must've seen over than ten different groups ascending different faces of the mountains there along the trail. With this out of the ordinary cold weather that has been hitting the valley, we actually got a little bit of snow on our hike.
It's a great spot to take a short hike, and the best part is, there is plenty of free parking near the trailhead. If you have the time, you can even hike into the Red Rock Conservation Area.
