Hike through a desert oasis that is approximately 30 minutes from the Las Vegas strip.

Enjoy a easy scenic hike in this beautiful Nevada desert hike. Great for beginners who are willing to climb a little. This hike has about 400 ft elevation gain and go through a terrain of boulders and canyons that were fairly easy to walk on and climb. Towards the top of the hike, before reaching the main vantage point, you will come across the Calico Tank which is a natural tank that collects rain water. At the top of the hike is a wonderful view which includes the Las Vegas strip in the distance. A great place to sit and have a snack before heading back down the trail. Watch the weather though, you want to make sure you are prepared if you have windy conditions.
