This was not a typical visit to Las Vegas. We were arriving to join in the canvassing ahead of the recent midterms, but we'd be staying on the Strip. So as an antidote to what we knew would be sensory overload, we took a couple...More
We came to Vegas for a short trip but managed to fit a tour to Red Rock which was a great idea! I loved the beautiful landscape and quiet nature outside of a busy and loud Vegas. It was nice to take a break from...More
Just a great place to spend a couple of hours. Beautiful hiking trails. (Calico Basin is an easy one I recommend) Awesome road bike trip. Lots of easy climbing (be safe !) Beautiful drive for the unambitious. Wear proper shoes, sun protection and bring water...More
We only had time for the 13-mile scenic loop but saw enough to want to return for some proper hiking in the future! The colors are amazing, I still revisit the photos every day! The entrance fee was $15 per vehicle, which I felt was...More
Quick drive outside of Vegas!
Beautiful scenes. You can pull over and “park” by the different rocks/cliffs. Everything is pathed and labeled- lots of tourists going off the path to explore.
Bring your camera and good climbing boots- amazing photo ops!!
The Red Rock Canyon tour was great. We toured the most beautiful mountains with so many various colors. Tom, our driver was very informative on the and during the the tour of the canyon. We had a wonderful time.
Red rock Canyon is absolutely breathtaking. My husband and I went on a rainy day and still had fun. The drive through is one way and you can’t go back, so pick up a trail map at the visitor center and plan your trip out...More

I get queasy on the second floor of my house if I look down through the window. You won't have any problem driving -- or even hiking -- the loop. It is graceful, smooth and the elevations are very gradual and modest. You... More
I get queasy on the second floor of my house if I look down through the window. You won't have any problem driving -- or even hiking -- the loop. It is graceful, smooth and the elevations are very gradual and modest. You will be looking UP a lot.

Not technically, but if you park outside and walk in, there's not much to stop you. I wouldn't recommend walking around at night though, that's dangerous. I might suggest visiting Calico Basin, it's essentially the front of... More
Not technically, but if you park outside and walk in, there's not much to stop you. I wouldn't recommend walking around at night though, that's dangerous. I might suggest visiting Calico Basin, it's essentially the front of Red Rock Canyon, the exit before going into the park. It's free, flatter, and not regulated. Hope that helps.

I see we've missed replying to you - sorry. The general order looks fine. If you have only one day to spend in Death Valley, including Red Rock Canyon might be a bit of a stretch. If your trip includes any of the Southwestern parks like the Grand Canyon or the Utah parks, Red Rock Canyon will be anticlimactic. However, from Death Valley to Los Angeles is is only 4-5 hours, and you could stay in Death Valley long enough to enjoy sunset somewhere (Mesquite Sand Dunes would be perfect,...More
