About Calico Basin Trail

This in-and-out trail leads visitors along the base of the colorful Calico Hills. Look for sport climbers on the rock walls and plenty of birds hovering in the sky. Ash trees line where the seasonal Calico Spring runs, adding greenery to the landscape.

Calico Basin Trail is part of the Calico Hills Loop Trail, and it connects with the Girl Scout Trail, which continues north from the base of Guardian Angel Canyon to Kraft Mountain Trailhead

The Red Spring trailhead offers splendid views of the colorful cliffs and canyons in Calico Basin. The trail starts at the north end of the parking area with an immediate climb in elevation. The trail then hugs the cliffs as it heads toward Calico Spring.

Fragile and rare springs are found throughout the area, which is filled with giant sandstone formations, hills and mountains.
