SATURDAY HIKE IN THE PARK
Saturday Dec. 14th 9am to 3pm

Red Rock Canyon State Park is offering a challenging 7.5 mile guided hike through the unique and beautiful rocky and sandy terrain of Hagen Canyon, Whistler Ridge, Red Rooster and Mushroom Rock Wash, including a short stretch of serious rock scrambling. The route is for moderate to advanced hikers; there will be opportunities along the route to return on your own to the parking area.

Meet hike leader Alice at the Hagen Canyon parking lot at 9 a.m., on Abbott Drive just off of Highway 14 (pay the $6/vehicle parking fee at the visitor center kiosk before meeting up). Lots of water, snacks, lunch, layered clothing, sun protection, and shoes with good traction are necessary. Gloves for rock scrambling areas (gardening gloves are adequate) and trekking poles are recommended. No dogs are allowed on this guided hike, and only heavy rain will cancel.

#OptOutside by taking hikes at other local California State Parks too! For questions about the hike, contact hike leader Alice at alicekhteian@hotmail.com, or learn about other hikes at www.REI.com/opt-outside.

New Year’s Day Hike aka FIRST DAY HIKE
JANUARY 1st 2020 9:00am to 4:00pm

Begin Your New Year with a Healthy Trek 
On a Hike at Red Rock Canyon State Park!

Make a New Year’s resolution to your health and happiness by kicking off 2020 with an invigorating First Day Hike at Red Rock Canyon State Park, as part of America’s State Parks First Day Hikes initiative in all 50 states. America’s State Parks First Day Hikes offer individuals and families an opportunity to begin the New Year rejuvenating and connecting with the outdoors by taking a healthy hike on January 1st at a state park. First Day Hikes offer a great way to get outside, exercise, enjoy nature and welcome the New Year with friends and family.

“America’s state parks are stunning year-round, but there’s nothing quite like a First Day Hike to really take in the great outdoors and kick off the New Year in a healthy way” said National Association of State Park Directors President Linda Lanterman. “Grab your family and friends, lace up those boots and seek out a new adventure at a state park. Friendly staff and spectacular views will be waiting for you!”

The 9-mile, all-day hike will be led at Red Rock Canyon State Park, 22 miles north of Mojave on Highway 14. Meet at 9:00 a.m. at the dirt lot on the east side of Hwy 14, ¾ mile north of Abbot Road for a hike into Nightmare Gulch with a side trip into the well-hidden “Secret Silent City”. The strenuous route begins with a scramble over three ridges to enjoy the fabulous views, with an elevation gain/loss of approximately 3000’. This hike is not for beginners, and dogs are not allowed on this guided hike; no exceptions. Wear layered clothing and bring plenty of water and snacks/lunch; hikers are responsible for their own health and safety. Participants will be back by approximately 4pm; only heavy rain will cancel.

“America’s State Parks invite the young and old alike to discover the serenity and natural beauty through exploring the beautiful public lands in every state,” the National Association of State Park Directors Executive Director Lewis Ledford said. “Hiking is a great way to improve your physical and mental health while enjoying the outdoors.” Participants are encouraged to share their adventures on social media with #FirstDayHikes.
