“Second visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Did not really discover this place til last year but will go there every time I am in the area. Take a walk thru the educational area in back of the visiter's center and orient yourself to what you are seeing and learning. Take even a small hike if you can. Do not hurry no matter who is pushing.

“Great Western Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This gives you a real experience, during the summer months, of what the early travelers to Nevada put up with. Still starkiy beautiful. Take liquids and sun protection cover for your outside time. It is a chance to see the real Nevada, not Vegas fantasy.

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We're not hikers or rock climbers, there were many here though, but we truly enjoyed the views of each point throughout the 13 miles scenic drive.. It seems so peaceful and serene, considering just 40 minutes or so ago we were on the Strip. No food or water available.

“Spectacular vistas and a rewarding trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Get out of Las Vegas, head West Young man and visit the Red Rocks. You will want to be there either at sunrise, if you have been up all night, or at sunset....both of which are spectacular. Also stunning during a full moon.
