We had a nice morning at Red Rock this week. The map we received at the entrance was helpful, but we ended up missing a turn off for a children's section/hike and were out of luck because it's a one-way road so we couldn't turn around. That was disappointing. Be sure you drive slowly and study your map well so... More

If it were up to me, every visitor to Las Vegas would have to leave the strip, at least once, to experience the beautiful nature that Vegas has to offer. With a 12 mile scenic driving route, numerous hiking trails, rock climbing and the magnificent view, Red Rock Canyon is a must see! There's really something for everyone. I've taken... More

A real jewel of Clark County. About 30 minutes from downtown (west). The visitors center has unique displays as to life in the canyon. The loop drive is a mus†. But to really enjoy all that Red Rock has to offer; take one of the many hikes offered to the various trails. Rated on ability and distance they will give... More

The views are great and there are many trails to walk. Each trail requires at least an hour but the kids one was very easy and there is a historic spot where the indians cooked to see. The cost is very affordable , you just pay per car and it was around $7. Better to bring water and food with... More

We winter in Summerlin, just 4 miles from Red Rock. We frequent the park regularly. There are literally dozens of hikes, each with a flavor of it's own. Plan to spend the better part of the day. Bring food and water. Bathrooms are available at nearly all the trail heads. There is a $6.00 entrance fee, If you are a... More

The Red Rock Canyon Area is no more than a 30 minute drive from the strip. Take a break from gambling and shopping and do yourself a favor and see a breathtaking natural wonder!! The sites are stunning and it will relax your soul to escape the concrete and glitter of the Strip. If you have your kids along set... More

After a number of years hiking and camping in this area. I still enjoy seeing the area. The colors at sunrise and sunset are fantastic. Not that far from town and hiking, rock climbing, sight seeing. Should be seen by all.

A scenic and beautiful area near Vegas, and a nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of The Strip. Very do-able in a day and an easy drive. You could also make it into a cycling trip, which we saw many others doing. My kids enjoyed it as well, and they are not usually the nature-loving types. The... More

Red Rock Canyon is 30 minutes away from Las Vegas Blvd, "the Strip". It is a great escape from the city. From a beautiful scenic drive to easy and difficult hikes. Wonderful views beautiful flora, maybe a wild burro or two. It is a great way to get out of the city and back to beautiful nature. As with any... More

Red Rock Canyon consists of 19 official trails and a 14 mile scenic drive, though I've found another dozen trails while exploring the area. Whether you're a fat heathen who hogs down at the buffets or a world-class mountain climber, Red Rock is accessible to nearly anyone. Snap great pictures out of your car window on the scenic loop, or... More
