Thoroughly enjoyed our visit with grandparents, parents, and kids 5-12. Stopped at most of the lookout points (specifically recommend stop 1, Calico 1 and stop 3, Calico Tanks for further exploring). Stop 1, Calico 1 has a lot of great general climbing around and fun...More

Ok, so everyone knows the Vegas experience and why they go - the strip, Freemont, etc. But there are several incredible geological, constructed, and natural 'wilderness' areas so close that you'd be crazy not to see them. These are what really make the Vegas experience...More

Great drive and amazing views. It does get very hot in the latter part of the day. Hike to the petroglyphs, easy and short hike.

A small group (8 people) one day tour with dessert tours.com Best thing I did! Our guide Jack was entertaining and knew so much of the history of the area. Made great stops with plenty of time to check the area out and photo opportunities!...More

Having visited the the visitor centre I was very impressed and wished we'd had time for the "drive tour". I will be rectifying this in September when we return. Spectacular views.

Good hiking and excellent vistas. Only issue is that the main road and all the parking can be very crowded.

Visual history that should be appreciated in person. Not far from Vegas proper. Can ride through for a day fee of $15 or come prepared and early (water, appropriate dress, shoes, sunscreen) for a step out onto various trails and stops. Photo ops galore.

You would have to go any of the off the beaten path trails where most people are not. The crowds at certain locations would scare away most wildlife.

Not at Red Rock Canyon but there is an area nearby called Calico Basin where you don’t pay, people hike and has lovely views. Perfect for what your looking to do. It’s not a tough hike, it has a path to follow around most of... More
