EASY Hike [masked] hours) -- Calico Basin -- Difficulty: 1 (easy)
Total Distance: 3 (or 4.5) miles -- Hourly weather
http://www.intellicast.com/Local/Hourly.aspx?location=USNV0008

Hike starts from Red Springs picnic area near the parking lot on the edge of Calico Basin. The turnoff from H-159 (West Charleston) is one mile before (east of) the Red Rock entrance (see location link below). Calico Basin is NOT part of the official Red Rock loop. You will not pass through any fee gates. This is a relatively "easy" hike with minimal scrambling. It may last up to 3+ hours.

This hike is for beginners and for those not interested in the faster pace or longer distance of other hikes. Pace will be set by the group. Adults, children age 12+, and well-behaved dogs (on leash) are welcome. Friendly chat is also welcome but please: no national politics or religion.
