About an hour drive from The Strip, this is a beautiful place to spend an additional hour or two for either sight-seeing, a family picnic, or hiking. Worth mentioning - after you leave the highway - as you turn onto the two lane road - with about 10 miles to the park, there's a small Navajo truck stop / gas... More

Did this trip on a charity motorcycle ride out of Vegas. It is about 40 miles off the Vegas strip and well worth the trip to get out of the hustle and bustle of downtown. Stunning vistas. Large enough that you could spend the entire day driving, hiking or just sitting in the sun.

Typically when people leave Vegas, they are not interested in doing anything just 50 miles away. However, this is well worth it.

It is a geological phenomena. The rocks are bright orange and red and they go on for miles. It is a great spot to take pictures and it is 55 minutes from Vegas. We found out about this feature from people at poolside. You can walk trails and see petroglyphs or just drive in your car.

This was a great way to spend a day with family. We had a great time looking at all of the rock formations and taking in the great weather that March provided. Will be visiting this area again.

If you can leave the gambling and get out into the desert this is a wonderful experience. A beautiful park and well worth a visit. Located about an hour north of the strip on I-15 this is easy to find. Some short and long hikes, but you can see a lot by just parking your car at the well posted... More
