Calico Tanks

Overview

This fairly strenuous, 1.2-mile hike runs up a canyon and over sandstone slickrock to a large natural depression (a "tank" or "tinaja") near the top of the Calico Hills ridge. The tank sometimes holds water, and there are great views of Calico Basin and the Las Vegas Valley from a saddle just beyond the tank.

This hike is described in detail, incuding a written description, photos, maps, and GPS coordinates, on the Calico Tank Trail webpage.
