New Peak ‘El Hijo’

New Peak is located in the La Madre Mountain Wilderness Area and is one of several minor summits in the Calico Basin section of the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. New Peak sits west of Kraft Mountain. I hiked New Peak from the east ‘Calico Basin’ in 2012 and from the west ‘Red Rock Canyon’ in 2015.

New Peak which is also called El Hijo – Spanish for “the son.” and is listed as Point 4987 on the map. The rock at the top is very sharp – I would advise wearing gloves. New Peak is the peak to the west of Kraft Mountain and above Ash Canyon.
