Climbed Turtlehead!! Took 3 hours to reach the top 2000+ feet above the parking lot - 3 miles away. Also took 2 hours to climb down as the terrain is rugged and strenuous. Getting close to nature after the lights and glitter of the LV strip was so refreshing. But bring water as there is no where close to get... More

I went on a Sunday afternoon and wished I had more time there. There is a lovely visitor's center and a 13 mile scenic drive. You can park along the drive and take a short (or long) hike to see the rocks, canyon, and other features. Definitely plan to stop at the visitor's center to find out more about what... More

Good hiking trails through the red rocks for various levels of hiking difficulty. Don't miss it if you are in Las Vegas. Merely 20-30 drive from the strip. Plan for half day trip (4-5 hours)

This 14 mile loop offers something for everyone. Great vistas while driving, excellent short hikes of less than 1 hour and some interesting historical places. Definitely worthwhile and you can also bike through if you want

It's a quick 45 min drive to the Red Rock Canyon and for about $7 you can explore the 13 mile drive around the Canyon with several areas to get out for hiking and climbing. Even for the general tourist it's a pretty good little side trip.

Experiencing this area was great during my recent visit to Las Vegas. The complete scenery was spectacular. I took a long walk to see the entire area. The area has its own charm. Great viewing experience. Would love to come here again

If you want a change in scenery take this drive. Beautiful rock formations and good hiking right outside of Las Vegas.

This park is to the west of Las Vegas, and some distance away, so you need to have a car. We really enjoyed the beauty of this park, and we stayed there a long time. It is quite large, with many different kinds of environments.

Beautiful red soil and formations. It's amazing how beautiful the earth really is. Great drive on the 13 mile tour. You can stop many places and walk out to different features. Always a beautiful place to visit.
