This hike leads to a 7,208-foot unnamed summit, which features excellent views of the numerous sandstone ridges and canyons that make up the Red Rock Escarpment.
The trail begins at Red Rock Summit and leaves the road to the east. It winds up around the head of a basin that drains to the west, and eventually reaches the crest of the escarpment. Now follow the ridge east-northeast to a spectacular viewpoint at the head of Icebox Canyon. From this 7,208-foot summit the view encompasses the Spring Mountains to the north, the entire Red Rock Canyon Area, Blue Diamond Mountain, the Las Vegas Valley, Lake Mead, the Mormon Mountains, and Mount Potosi. On clear days, you can see the 8,000-foot Virgin Mountains 85 miles away in extreme northwestern Arizona.
