Your Hikes

» Ice Box Canyon Trail, Red Rock Canyon This 2.2-mile out-and-back explores a rocky, tree-lined wash pinched by towering cliffs and dotted with pools after a rain. “You can hike here in the dead of summer and escape the heat,” says organizer Alan Gegax. From the mouth of the canyon, scramble across boulders to a seasonal waterfall that pours into a series of slickrock pools. Miles from city center 31; Trip ID769631

» Fletcher Canyon, Spring Mountains Less than a hour from The Strip, this 3.6-miler (round-trip) starts with a mellow stroll north through open stands of ponderosa and mountain mahogany. Near mile 1.5, pass Fletcher Spring before entering a slot canyon flanked by ragged limestone walls. Turn around .3 mile later where the route seems to dead-end at Obstacle Rock. Follow the same route back to Kyle Canyon Road. Miles from city center 40; Trip ID757862
