What we'll do
We can hike and trail run starting from Calico Basin Road and then around the grand circle. This is about 14 miles and the time will vary based on the group. Allow 4- 5 hours depending on weather conditions. It is about half hike and half trail running. It is long but beautiful. I have seen wild burrows, lots of mountain blue jays, desert tortoises, and once even had a pack of coyotes running along side me down in a ravine for about a mile. I did not see them but I sure did hear them! Bring plenty of water and a couple of good snacks. Always have a head lamp just in case. This is not a difficult hike but it is LONG and we will be moving pretty fast.

What to bring
Sunscreen and a buff for wind are always a good idea. The temperatures can change from hot to cold to hot again so layers are a good idea. Breaks will be very short so bring snacks you can eat as you go. Water is essential!!!

How to find us:Look for my Silver Hyundia Elantra with lots of bummer stickers on it from my adventures. The trail heads is about 1 mile down Calico Basin Rd. If you reach Red Springs Picnic Area you've gone too far.
