White Rock Loop
White Rock Loop trail starts at the Willow Springs Picnic Area. From Willow Springs the trail runs north of White Rock Mountain and White Rock Springs peak in the La Madre Mountain Wilderness Area before looping back on the south side in Red Rock Canyon.
White Rock Loop scenery changes dramatically on the east and west sides of White Rock Mountain. The east side is mostly desert and the west side is a secluded forest of juniper and pine trees. The hike has nice views of the La Madre mountain range to the north, Turtlehead Peak and the Calico Hills to the east.
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area: Over one million people each year come to experience Red Rock Canyon’s 195,819 acres of desert beauty, towering sandstone cliffs and abundant wildlife. Scramble across fossilized sand dunes, climb sheer rock walls, or just enjoy the scenic beauty along the road. Rock climbers always dot the cliffs in this world-class climbing area.
