Red Rock Canyon is only a few miles out of Vegas, but it is spectacular. The drive up into it is easy, park your car and walk around. The colour of the earth and rocks is a beautiful rich reddy brown. Take a picnic and make a day of it.

Great place to go to and only about 30 minutes outside of Vegas. Certainly better to go there in spring or fall when the temperatures are a little lower but we have been there year round and it is worth the trip.

Loved the scenery. Tranquility and peaceful. Helpful and informative visitors centre. No rushing - you could drive, park, take your time to take in the scenery.

The younger generation enjoyed the rock climbing and nature trails. The welcome center was comfortable and interesting to the older generation.

Not far out from Las Vegas and a very beautiful drive. Some nice short walks and hiking but you can drive to the main attractions so older or disabled won't miss out.

Visited while on vacation. Interesting day trip, bring comfy shoes (sneakers) and lots of water. Great to walk amongst rocks & trails.

Place looks pretty cool, but unless you are hiking or biking, there's really not time you can spend there. There were some nice vehicle trails that could be driven on with a 4wd SUV and that would've probably made it more interesting... But honestly, it's just a bunch of desert plants and rocks. If you don't like staring at that... More

Get your walking shoes on and go see the beauty of the Las Vegas area! You could really spend all day out here if you wanted too! The scenery is spectacular.

We wanted to get out of Las Vegas Strip for awhile and not drive all the way to the Grand Canyon. This was beautiful, fun to walk and climb and informative. Great trip.
