NileGuide Expert tip:
Geology lovers will enjoy the unusual formation at Keystone. The older rocks are on top here, instead of the younger Aztec sandstone.
- From the upper White Rocks Springs parking lot in Red Rock Canyon take the trail north across the wash, and up the hill. The Keystone Thrust Trail "Ts" off the La Madre Springs loop to the right, approximately 1/4 mile from the parking lot. Take the right fork up the stairs to where it joins an old jeep road, continue uo hill to the left. The trail traverses a low ridge, heads down into a small canyon, onto the Keystone Thrust Fault where the gray limestone meets the red and tan sandstone.
