Located west from the Red Rock Canyon Visitors center, Ice Box Canyon Trail is a 2.5 moderately strenuous well marked trail.

From the parking lot, the trail heads down across the wash and up the other side toward the canyon. The trail is well defined as it leads you up the side of the canyon for approximately 3/4 of a mile. It then drops into the bottom of the canyon. From this point the trail becomes a route over or around boulders as it continues upstream. The official trail ends at the large Ponderosa Pine Trees in the bottom of the canyon ( 2.5 miles round trip ). To reach the upper pooled filled by a seasonal waterfall, be prepared for some tricky wall scrambling, and a 3 mile round trip.

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 west onto a trail. Automobiles are along on the trail. Continue until the parking lot.

Elevation: 1,280 feet

Difficulty: Strenuous
