If you are in Vegas, take the time to head out to this area. It's only about a half hour drive. My husband and I rented a Porsche for the day and this was one of the places we checked out. Easy drive with plenty of places to turn off, park and hike or just take pictures. Nice easy 13... More

Worth a visit, easy to get too from the strip. Amazing views and rock formation. We went for lunch at Bonnies spring Ranch - authentic and good food

We enjoy the challenge of all the trails. My friends and I look forward to hiking here on into our 70's! I wish we lived close enough to come more often. I just wish some of the rest stops were a little less smelly.

Most folks from the area were very thankful we visited Red Rock Canyon. Apparently it is a hidden gem not visited by most travelers to Vegas. I'm not sure why, it was beautiful. Peaceful 13 mile drive thru some very scenic rock formaitions and desert areas. A bargain at only $8 per car, I would love to go back and... More

This place is about 40 minutes from the strip and well worth the drive. The scenic drive around the area is 13 mies and had numerous trails.

Wonderful area just outside of the strip. Good to get back to mother nature after all the glitz of the strip.

This is not a place you want to visit during summer months but from late Fall to Spring it's a wonderful day trip. It;'s a very easy drive (30 min tops) from the Strip and it is worlds away. It offers beautiful vistas and some very scenic scenery. The Visitor Center is superb and the drive through the park can... More

We spent several hours doing the scenic drive and loved every moment. We rented a convertible and the views were incredible. It was one of the favourite things that we did on our trip! Quick drive from the strip.

We had an awesome time visiting and hiking trails in the Red Rock Canyon even though it was August and pretty hot, Bring lots of water and snacks to stay hydrated and fueled and a camera to capture the amazing sights and views!
