Great hiking

Great hiking location and quiet off the beaten path. I liked it for that reason. Get there early because parking can be difficult.

This was a great place to visit. Wish that we had more time for hiking. The views were amazing. The visitor center was very informative.

I went up there on a Strip visit with friends, on their say-so. I was absolutely blown away. saw about 50 wild burros (lived in the West my entire life and never saw a wild burro) and drove down the road a few miles to a place called Bonnie Springs, where I had maybe the coldest, freshest Fat Tire beer...

Great sites and hikes. There are some great easy hikes for the novice of hikers. There are some harder longer one for those who enjoy a challenge. We have been there twice now and will be back again.

There is a 13 mile trip you can take (in your own car) with periodic stops for photo ops or picnics or just taking in the views. The gift shop was very nice, all the way around just a great side trip!

Beautiful rock formations and wildlife just minutes from Las Vegas, Nevada. Not exactly Bryce canyon but for being so close-by it's worth the effort.

When you are ready for some natural beauty away from the strip take a circle drive around Red Rock Canyon. The beauty is stunning.

Great climbing site as witnessed by the number of climbers the day we visited. Extensive trail systems for both novice and expert hikers. The visitors centre was enjoyable but the staff seemed a bit unfriendly, perhaps the crowds the day we visited. Take lots of water with you when you hike ... you will need it.

the red rock canyon is a great one time experience and a must see. The grandeur of the canyon in our second visit was not as great and I guess that goes for any experience. Do take it in at least once.
