RED ROCK CANYON

Calico Hills
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, as it's officially named, is managed by the BLM. Famous for its hiking & world class climbing, the area was officially designated in 1990. The scenic loop, a 13 mile one-way road, leads visitors through the canyon. Red Rock offers many pull offs with a wide variety of hikes from the easy Lost Creek to the strenuous Bridge Mountain.

The geology of the area is very impressive. The colorful Aztec sandstone collided with the older carbonate rocks forming a line known as the Keystone Thrust. Also, the many streams & springs give life to over 700 plant & animal species.
