Part of the boardwalk is closed for repairs

Overview

The Red Spring, or Calico Basin, Boardwalk is a delightful and fully accessible trail in the Calico Basin area of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The boardwalk, however, is aging more rapidly than expected, and the boards are starting to break up. Even worse, some of the sub-structure is also falling apart.

The boardwalk is now closed as the BLM repairs the structure, which are expected to take until about mid-2018.
