The rocks are fantastic - doffs hat to nature - but the BLM's visitors centre is excellent. It is very thorough; with a book's worth of information provided in bite size chucks and collected together with enough detail to allow for further exploration on any topic from rainfall, to animal life and, obviously, the rocks.

Red Rock is beautiful! Have been here in the spring & now in the fall. Nice change from the glitz of The Strip. Great place to picnic!

Red rock is a very interesting geological area. Rock formations are really cool and there is a large variety of hiking options. Many of the hikes are out and back and vary in distances quite a bit. The park gets very busy on weekends, but is still big enough that you can find areas to yourself. We did a 4... More

Only a 20- to 30-minute drive from the Vegas strip, Red Rock Canyon offers a 13-mile one way scenic loop drive. The scenery is lovely. There's a great Visitor Centre (and gift shop), which is worth checking out before you start your drive. There are plenty of places to pull over to enjoy the view or to go for a... More

This was a perfect escape from the casino strip. Just 30 minutes West of the casinos, we were able to spend the day exploring the awesome colored rocks and interesting landscape. Great for clearing the mind and soul! I would definitely come back to Vegas just for this! Wonderful views...

Red Rock Canyon is a short drive from the heart of Vegas. Beautiful area to picnic and hike in and around the area. Very clean and well maintained.

The scenic drive was pretty long, I went an hour or two before sunset and by the time we got out it was pitch black. Great place to take pictures, do a little hiking and walk around. Go earlier so you can enjoy the sights better. If you are around the area drive by, it was worth it. It's about... More

An absolutely beautiful park for hiking, riding, birding, and photography in the outskirts of Las Vegas. For those who don't care as mush about the glitz of Vegas, this is a good place to get away.
