First time doing the White Tanks and I must say, this mountain regional park is awesome. Very easy to get to - great facilities and very well marked trails.

I did the loop - Ford Canyon to Willow to Mesquite - almost a 11 mile trip with a gain of aboout 1300'. I had heard that this loop was a "serious challenge" but did not find that all to be true. I couldn't believe though with a metro pop. exceeding 5 million that I only saw a few people - and that was mainly at the end or begining of the loop.

Pay your $5.00 to the nice man at the gate. Request a map and you're on your way. Really nothing to report other then you'll reach your highest elevation (2850') just past the Dam. The scenery is so so - must be great though after a rain fall!

Finally a Great Hiking App This is a must have for the avid or even beginning hiker. Easy to set up and use. The Topo maps and the ability to download a track prior to hiking, will ensure I get out of the Wilderness OK. If I set my phone to Airplane Mode, (GPS On) I've gone 13 hours with battery to spare. Recent upgrades have made this very user friendly for both the occasional Hiker/Walker to the All Day Hikers. Lots of Stats available to keep track of what you are doing.
