Calico Basin / Red Springs: Site is accessible by passenger car.
Calico is on the way to the Red Rock Conservation area. Going west on Charleston Blvd. from the intersection of Hwy 215 (the Las Vegas Beltway) and Charleston Blvd., stay on Charleston and go approximately 3.9 miles. On the right you will see a sign for Red Springs / Calico Basin. Turn right on Calico Basin Rd. and continue a short distance to the Red Springs picnic area parking lot. There is a new "Boardwalk" circling the grounds. Go to the far side of the walkway next to the hill. From here you will see a couple of large rocks with petroglyphs on them. There are other petroglyphs high up on the hill as well as near the base and they are scattered along the hill for several hundred yards. When standing on the walk, start scanning the hill in front of you; it will not be long before you start seeing them.
You can either cross over the fence or go around to get access to the hillside. The petroglyphs in this area are on several types of rocks and on horizontal and vertical surfaces.
