The visitors center is huge and very nice. We drove the loop and saw lots of people climbing the many rock faces. Right near the end we saw 2 burrows, which was very exciting. Bring a picnic, there are some nice places for lunch. We were about a week early to see all the cactus in bloom, but the preview... More

What a great trip through Red Rock Canyon! For less than $15,00 per person (and gas to fuel the vehicle), we drove, walked, hiked, and took pics of what I consider to be an underrated natural wonder...

really nice area close to Las Vegas, but after that we saw the gorgeous huge (real) NP, so the RRC could not stand the comparison

Worth a visit if you can get away from the strip. Stunning scenery, lots of places to stop and look for Max. Very peaceful.

We just did the scenic drive because of time limitation. It would have been great to do a few of the hikes. 'have never seen as nice a visitor center as this one--very well done!

This place is absolutely beautiful. Make sure and go when the sun is shining to get the full effect of these awesome formations. Valley of fire is a similar experience if you want to get out of town a bit farther. Watch for the wild burro's in the flat lands.

Get out of Vegas and visit this wonderful National park, the visitors center is full of information on the desert and the surrounding mountains and the scenic drive is well worth the time.

Easy short trip from strip and you get to see some beautiful mountains and views. If you don't feel like taking one of the many easy hikes, you can just drive around the park and enjoy the fantastic views.

What an incredible place, on the west side of Las Vegas and yet so far away from what you'd expect. It is beautiful and very accessible by car, bike or foot. You can stay on the access road or hike further into the park. It is a beautiful place to visit.

Beautiful area. Only 20 minutes from the strip. Worth the trip. You can hike or simply stop the car at the view areas.
