THE STORY:

Hike for Hope

Red Rock Canyon Hike

Benefiting City of Hope

 

Hosted by Michael Morris

Friday October 9, 2015

9am – 2pm (Lunch Provided)

 

Take your support of City of Hope and the fight against cancer to new heights by participating in the Hike for Hope following the conclusion of EPIC 2015. Taking place Friday October 9th, the Hike for Hope is the perfect way to cap off EPIC in a BIG way. Sign up to participate in the hike and you’ll experience a spectacular natural retreat just minutes away from the Las Vegas strip at the Red Rock Canyon, while supporting a remarkable cause. Long treasured by locals, Red Rock Canyon is the crown jewel of the desert Southwest and is bestowed with lush springs, abundant plants, ample wildlife and unique geological formations. Experience Red Rock Canyon and you’ll not believe that you are in Las Vegas!

 

The Hike for Hope is a wonderful opportunity to take in the beautiful landscapes and natural surroundings while having fun with your fellow EPIC friends, enjoying some adventure and physical activity – at whichever level you choose.

 

There’s a Hike for Everyone! Decide your trail now…or decide later!

 

EASY – Pine Creek Canyon

2 miles. 2 hours.

300 ft gain

 

With an abundance of life to be observed, Pine Creek Canyon is considered to be one of the most beautiful canyons of Red Rock and this Pine Creek Canyon is and easy casual hike of the relatively flat, lush area nestled against a backdrop of sheer cliffs and craggy buttes. Aside from the initial descent, this hike follows gentle grades and involves no rock hopping or scrambling, allowing participants to focus on the natural beauty of pine creek.

 

MODERATE – Ice Box Canyon

2.5 miles. 2.5 hours

300 ft gain

 

This trial leads into a cool canyon within the Red Rock Escarpment and offers glimpses of towering cliffs, numerous plants and a seasonal waterfall. This moderately strenuous hike traverses the open desert and then enters the canyon where there is some rock scrambling and rock hopping required. Inside the canyon, tall walls of sandstone loom overhead, blocking most direct sunlight, creating cool air in the canyon. The second half of the hike requires some agile movement through the wash to reach the waterfall.

 

ADVANCED – Turtlehead Peak

4.5 miles. 4 hours

2000 ft gain

 

With a distinct summit and one of the most dramatic views of Red Rock Canyon, Turtlehead Peak is the premier hiking trail for the adventurous. Turtlehead Peak is well positioned for taking in the surrounding landscape that stretches out in all directions. Situated at the edge of a cliff, this hike takes participants around blobular sandstone formations that seem to grow from the ocean floor. As the elevation increases, limestone spires and gnarly, stunted trees impart a mystical feeling. Due to the steepness of the trail and the occasional unstable terrain, this hike is for those that are in good physical shape and have hiked before.
