New Year Hike and Potluck Picnic – Red Rock Canyon

Let’s celebrate new year on the trail with potluck picnic!

Easy-Intermediate, 4 miles, 800′ gain

We’ll be passing through a beautiful canyon with huge red, pale purple, and tan sandstone walls.

The hike begins with a steady climb on a fire road for 0.75 mile. We turn right at the junction and begin heading mostly down another fire road for about 1.25 miles.

There will be a picnic area on the right, where we’ll enjoy a potluck picnic. If your item requires utensils/plates/toothpicks, etc., please bring them.

The picnic area is wooded and shaded. Consider bringing insect repellent.

We’ll return the way we came after about 1.5 hours.
