Second time there and still really enjoyable. This time it was sunrise in February with friends. Even though it was early a lot of people wondering around, photographers taking pictures and sharing opinions about the scenery. Really close to Vegas, only 20 minutes drive and you are in the canyon. Like being in a different country, Vegas is busy and... More

I've read and heard so much about this place over the years, so it was on our short list of places to visit on our recent vacation to Las Vegas. The 13 mile scenic loop was really quite lovely, with strategic pullouts and some interpretive signage to help guide the curious explorer. Hike to the seasonal falls if it has... More

Fun place to take a drive or go for a hike. Beautiful scenery of the red rocks and all their formations. Close to the city if you need to rent a car on vacation. Good to take a picnic and enjoy it all out in the open.

Very scenic and move at your own pace. The higher we got to the clouds, it was raining. The next morning snow covered mountains. Loads of trails, and plenty of places to climb.

The color of the mountains and trails are wonderful from just a stroll to experienced climbers. I have been on every trail there and my favorite is the Ice box canyon but the creek trail is nice too. There is water in the spring some small water falls

This is a great little day trip to getaway from Las Vegas for a break. The visitor center is very impressive, there are a number of exhibits about the park and it's history. There are a number of trails to hike so you can make this as long a stay as you like. It's not the Grand Canyon but very... More

Although a little crowded in February, Red Rock Canyon is a great place to hike. The BLM, which administers the area, is not known for their skills in non-motorized recreation and the poor trail conditions and trail markings is the result. However the visitor center is good with helpful staff.

Ideal place for a short trip from the strip to get your fill of nature. There are endless trails and plenty of scrambling opportunities. Take water and a good pair of shoes.

It is a well done facility and very educational. It would be a good trip to take children or grandchildren on. The chance to see animals and plants if very good.

We were amazed at how close this Red Rock Canyon is to the main Vegas strip. The site is easy to find and easy as a drive through if you are in a non adventurous nature lover category. However, there are many trails and side stops to match whatever endurance levels your heart desires.
