Located northwest from the Red Rock Canyon Trail this moderate difficulty 6 mile trail can be started at White Rock Springs or Willow Springs and can be done either direction.

This trail can be started at White Rock Springs or Willow Springs and can be done either direction. By starting at Willow Springs hikers can deal with the steep climb to White Rock near the beginning of the hike, rather than at the end. When you come to a fork with a sign reading "White Rock Springs 2.2 miles", take the uphill trail to the left. Follow it to White Rock upper parking lot, continuing east from the lot. When the trail forks, go left and follow the trail until it intersects an old dirt road. Follow that road downhill to where it forks to the left, returning you to Willow Springs, or right to La Madre Spring.

Please Note: Carry water, at least one gallon per person per day in the summer. Wear appropriate footwear suitable for hiking and a hat. Watch the weather, mountain thunderstorms can cause flash flooding in the canyons and nearby washes.

Directions: From Las Vegas, Travel ten miles west along State Route 159. Once at the Red Rock Canyon Visitor Center turn northwest onto a paved road. Continue on the paved road until the Upper White Rock Springs parking lot.
