A very short drive from anywhere in Vegas, this park will not disappoint. The views are amazing and the trails are endless. If you're not quite up to hiking, no problem. There is a smooth paved 11-mile road that takes you to every vantage point you could imagine. The visitor center is new, large and very well-designed with a great... More

Away from all the glitz and glam of the strip is Red Rock Canyon. We went in September on a very very hot day (about 39C out), so we weren't able to hike around much. However, the multiple pullover points make it easy to get out, look around at the rocks and plants, take some pictures, and continue on. Entry... More

Compared to the other national parks, this one was quite small (only around 15 miles to drive through). Entrance fee applies (and if you are visiting more than 4 state parks, buy the annual ticket!). very very beautiful and worth exploring. Sunset and sunrise bring an amazing light and colour to the rocks. There is also a great view of... More

Took a trip here for a break from the Strip. Worth the 20 minute drive. Beautiful views and great trails! The scenic drive was great. Wish there were water refill stations at pull-off areas.

Red Rock Canyon is about 20 minutes from the Vegas Strip. it's a beautiful sight to see but can get crowded depending on the time of day you go. a worth while side trip for sure.

Redrock friend since the 70's. beautiful from miles away and even more so up close and hiking the canyons. Naturally I preferred the freedom of exploring before it became a park. However with the population of Las Vegas and visitation, it's necessary to protect the environment nonetheless there are plenty of opportunities for solitude and challenging hikes. NEVER neglect bringing... More

This park is only a 30 minute drive from the strip and makes for a very nice day trip. There's a 13 mile scenic drive that you can take for only $7.00 entrance to the park. It is fun!

A great place to go to get away from the strip. Close to vegas. Beautiful views. This park has something for everyone. One can simply drive the scenic loop and stop at various look-out or picnic points to take pictures, or for those seeking more activity, there are hikes from the very easy to challenging. Bring water.
