Red Rock Canyon, NV: Ice Box Canyon Trail

nv

Star Star

Distance: 1.1 miles


This 2.2-mile out-and-back in Red Rock Canyon explores a rocky, tree-lined wash pinched by towering cliffs and dotted with pools after a rain.
  • View from Red Rock Wash
  • Junction
  • Wildflowers
  • Canyon Walls
  • Steps to Wash
  • Boulders
  • Towering Pine
  • Waterfall
  • Calico Hills

Explore the inner depths of Ice Box Canyon—named for the cooler temperatures found deep in the canyon—and test your rock scrambling skills on this 2.2-miler.
From the trailhead, head west across a wash to a band of 6,000-foot cliffs. Descend several steps then pick your way around the trees that line the wash and scramble over countless boulders. After 1.1 miles, the route dead-ends in a box canyon with a seasonal waterfall.

If it is solitude you are looking for this is not it. I hiked this trail on a Wednesday afternoon in late March 2013. The trail was quite crowded and had not been maintained in what appeared to be a long time. A lot of dog poop, and trash. Even this time of year the waterfall was just a trickle. If it is water you seek, I would recommend La Madra Springs over Ice Box
