Drive west on Charleston and you will find Red Rock Canyon just outside of town. This beautiful park has magnificent rock formations and a one way drive through them. There are several spots to stop and view or hike the area. Summer is a bit hot, so unless you are used to extreme heat, this is not the time to... More

Doesn't cost a lot (7$) and you can enjoy a little of the desert life. You can do some hiking which is nice.

Great hiking and scenic views. The place is a geological delight as well! The visitor's center is wonderful and the outside area has many exhibits - everyone loves the turtles!

My wife and I love visiting national parks and outdoor nature whenever we take trips around the country. So, a visit to Las Vegas would not be complete without touring the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The views of the various rock formations and the beautiful colors was incredible. If you want to experience something other than the glitz... More

The Canyon is so beautiful; there were six of us (all 50+) and we acted like ten year old kids exploring, photographing and calling to hear our echos. Everyone had a great time and what was supposed to be a one or two hour drive ended up being a five hour adventure. Make sure you take a camera with fresh... More

Red Rock Canyon is a short drive from downtown Las Vegas, we wanted to sign up for a paid tour at our hotel but it was sold out. We decided to just drive there instead. The entrance fee was $7.00, well worth it. After a walk around the welcome center/gift shop, where we learned a lot about the history of... More

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation area is worth the short drive from Las Vegas. There are plenty of areas to pull-off and park to take pictures or hike. There are bathrooms throughout the scenic drive, but you should bring water with you.

Our second time to Red Rock was as wonderful as the first. We went on a weekday so there were no crowds and the weather was great. Pack a picnic lunch for an extra nice time.

We had the pleasure of taking a scooter tour via Scoot City Tours of the Red Rock Canyon area. RRC is a must see place, whether you go via the tour, via car, bus or bike. Make sure you go see it. There are plenty of places to stop and take pictures, go to the bathroom or simply go on... More

My brother decided to go for a run here. I had a more sedate walk. Stunning scenery, very helpful staff and information centre. Make sure you take plenty of water to drink as it is thirsty work walking the trails. Also, some of them are not that clearly marked, so it is easy to go off the beaten track slightly.... More
