“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I definitely want to hike the trails! My husband went out for an early morning run around the scenic loop and thought it was spectacular. It was especially nice that since he is active duty Navy we were given a free annual pass.

“Beauty and Bliss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

If you are visiting Vegas and are looking to get out of the smokey, dark casinos, then Red Rock Canyon (only about 25 minutes outside of Vegas) is a must see. The 13-mile scenic drive is well worth the couple of bucks for entry. The scenic route will take you to overlook points and, for those who would like to go for a hike, the route offers trails of all levels of difficulty. The park is absolutely beautiful. There is not much shade at all, so be sure to bring A LOT of water - especially if you are visiting during the months between May-September. I highly recommend taking a drive out there.

“Nice and Peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

My husband and I drove out here one morning and we were glad we did. It was about a 20-30 minute drive, but you feel so far away from the crazy strip. It's sooo quiet. I don't know if I can say it's beautiful, but in its own way pretty. There are lots of places to stop and take pictures and hike. I think it's $5 to get in.

“Vegas' better half”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Red Rock Canyon is 20 minutes or so from the Strip but a world apart. Our kids (10 and 7) could have spent all day there hiking and climbing. It is a stunning area and can redeem any trip to LV. Bring water and sunscreen and check out the visitor's center!

“Incredible Views near LV”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Sunny day, bright skies, comfortable temperatures, and incredible colors and rock formations. Worth the short 20 minute drive from LV strip
