Inside Interpretation is OK but the outside is fabulous! You can bike the one way auto route as well as hike the trails. Trails are varied by length.

We were in town for a concert and I am not a huge fan of the regular Vegas activities, so this was right in my wheelhouse. The scenery is simple amazing. Some absolutely stunning red rock mountains that is such a nice change over the strip. We thoroughly enjoyed the visitor's center and learned lots about the history of the... More

If in Vegas you become fed up with the smoky, dimly lit, clanging casinos, then Red Rock Canyon is your escape hatch. Within a quick drive from downtown, maybe 30 minutes, you are out in the magical desert hinterlands. Beware of the wild burros, which frequently cross the road as you near the park. To get in there's a small... More

Not far out from the Vegas Strip , this is really a worthwhile place to visit to see nature at it's best. Spectacular views and a photographers paradise , try and keep a couple of hours open to undertake this trip - won't be regretted !!

We read the reviews. We went there. We left wondering how it got such great reviews. Maybe we were jaded because we have been to the Red Rocks in Sedona, a must see place. We did a trip to Bryce and Zion National Parks last time we were in Las Vegas and really enjoyed them. You can do a day... More

I'm not an outdoor person so I enjoyed that I was able to drive through and stop when I wanted to take pictures. There were bathrooms along the way.

You could easily spend just a morning or late afternoon here, and still return to the Strip with time to squeeze in plenty of other activities. Or you could spend all day here. There are plenty of short and long hikes to choose from. Apparently, Ice Box Canyon (moderate, 2 hours) is a good one to do on a hot... More

A truly outstanding trip through the conservatory. Enjoyed it so much we went thru a second time. There is a speed limit in the Conservation area and we could not understand why people visited the area and then sped through it only to exit without stopping to view the beauty.

Just 35 minutes from hotel, the scenery is just out of this world. You can explore the area and climb some of the mountains if you choose. Its $10 a car load to get in and a great value. If your lucky you and see some wild horses and Burros Just beautiful and worth the time. Don"t miss this!!!
