I neglected to visit Red Rock Canyon for many years. Finally I had the time to go there and I can only recommend for everybody to do the same. The beautiful colors and formations of the rocks along the 13 mile scenic drive give you a small preview of what's to come should you be heading for the big national... More

Wow - what a find! It is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the sights of the Strip and although you need transport to get there it is well worth the effort. It took us just 30 minutes and a very easy drive from Downtown Las Vegas. We loved the 13-mile scenic loop with some fantastic vistas.... More

I had heard about Red Rock Canyon but did not know it is so close to Vegas. This year I drove out and really enjoyed the visitor center, the loop drive and one of the many hikes. I seem to have misplaced the hand out of the trails and hikes so I can not tell you which hike I took... More

This time we were better prepared and went straight up the center of the mountain ridge to reach the summit in just over an hour. Have to kind of find a trail which is straight down then up to the right and around the corner to the left which takes you up a very long steep trail right to the... More

It is about 30 minutes by car from the Strip and not far from a very pleasant area of Las Vegas so it feels like it is just past the outer suburbs. We went there about 7pm and drove through. If you are there all day, there are hikes that you can do, but we had a limited amount of... More

Have been here a couple of times. There are many options, you can just drive the loop and stop off for photo ops here and there; you can do some hiking; have a picnic, or even walk, jog, cycle the 13 mile loop. One of the best ways to "do the loop" is to go on a Red E Bike... More

Like most things it's the reward for effort it's a long drive but if you link a few parks and sights a good day out but a long day out Memories are better than dreams

We liked driving around the canyon, when we got tired of stopping by looking at different things! We liked this as much as seeing The Grand Canyon!

This was a beautiful area, and I would like to go back. We drove out basically for the morning (trying to beat some of the heat). The colors are amazing! We walked a little bit, but mostly took it in through the 13-mile drive, stopping periodically. There are lots of trails of varying lengths. Was easy to get to from... More
