Red Rock Canyon, NV: Ice Box Canyon Trail

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.

Rating

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.
