It was more driving that we thought, getting to the various trails. I thought we could start at the visitors center, but you need to drive to the trail heads. There are many choices, varied levels of easy to difficult. Wonderful hikes, heiroglyghs, cacti. Great break from all the glitz of Las Vegas.

My family of 5 expected to just view and stare at rock structures like the Grand Canyon. We were excitedly surprised to discover that you can actually hike and walk on the rocks. Entrance was less than $10 when we went so that was a nice welcome. This was Spring Break so we expected a lot of people. And we... More

The sights are amazing. Don't just drive through, stop, park and enjoy the beauty, caves, waterfalls and animal life. DO NOT pet the burros. They are wild and it's not worth donating a finger or worse while on vacation. Do stop at the visitor center for information on the park. Take water with you should you plan to go hiking... More

This is well worth the short (20min) trip from Las Vegas. There is a scenic drive (one way) with numerous stops and photo ops along the way. I went on a short walk, bring LOTs of water!!!! Be sure to stop at the visitor center and say hello to the tortoise!

Just an amazing site. Perfect example of God's paint brush. Such a wonder to behold the beauty of this place. It is slow paced and the perfect place to enjoy nature.

Think Las Vegas is all flashing neon and noisy casinos? Take a little detour west on Charleston, continue over the 215, and in just a few minutes, you're at the doorstep of one of the most scenic parks in the entire southwest. Red Rock has something for everyone. People simply wanting to learn more about the history of the area... More

We visited Arches NP, Zion NP, Bryce Canyon NP, and the Grand Canyon, and Red Rock Canyon was just as spectacular as any of these other amazing sites. We arrived in Vegas too early to check in at our hotel, so thought we would spend a little while at Red Rock. We were overwhelmed! We spent several hours here, and... More

This is my third time going here and it's such a lovely and natural break from the busyness and glitz of Las Vegas. The scenic loop has several areas to park and hike around. Just bring plenty of water, it's hot and dry but lovely and very scenic! The rocks and formations seem to smile and have character!

Unattractive, Had to pay to get in and almost Zero Cell Phone Coverage! The State takes in all this gambling revenue but you have to pay to get in! Nevada & the Park Service grossly mismanage this park! We slept there overnight 3 times and have nothing nice to say other than it's close.

This is my second visit to red rock canyon. I loved it the first time. Therefore it was a must see for the year's trip to Vegas. If you enjoy nature, history and rock formations you'll love it here. It's absolutely beautiful. Take a backpack and plenty of water. You don't have to hike. My 80+ mother still loved the... More
