You can BIKE the scenic loop!
Oct 2021
A welcomed break from the hustle and bustle of downtown.
Plus the scenic loop is a paved trail which can be biked by road bike or mountain bike.

So beautiful!
Sep 2021
We took the scenic drive. All the stops offer great up-close looks at the mountain range and the desert. The visitor center has some cool and informative displays. I'm so glad we didn't miss this conservation area just a little north of Las Vegas.

Nice diversion
Oct 2021 • Family
Nice diversion, short drive from Vegas. Be warned during busy time you may need a reservation, but we got lucky and got in. Also be warned that loop road is one way and no way to return to visitor center or go around loop again. End of road forces you to exit. So don’t assume you can revisit an area once you pass it. There is no return. National park passes will work here with small additional reservation fee. Nice hiking trails. There is only one red rock but still a pretty area

Simply Breathtaking!
Sep 2021
We have visited Red Rock at least 5 times now and it is just wonderful each time. The scenery is so beautiful with all the natural beauty surrounding you. It is so peaceful and serene to drive through or for the more adventurous, there are plenty of trails to hike and things to see. The best part is it is only 1/2hr outside Vegas!

Informative of the fauna and majesty of the canyon. Loved the conservation work, who does not love a desert tortoise!

Rent a car and just go!
Sep 2021 • Friends
This is my 5th visit to Vegas but first time hiking in red rock. I’ve always wanted to go to the Grand Canyon but never went because of it being so far. Red Rock was a great alternative. I did not book a tour as I’ve read in other reviews that it’s very short and you don’t get to experience all of its beauty. I rented a car and drove there myself. It’s only about 30 minutes away from the strip. The drive there was very simple and when you get there you pay an entry fee. $15 per car no matter how many people in it. So the park is a 13 mile loop of just beautiful scenery. There are so many lookout points with spectacular views. You don’t have to hike the trails to enjoy this visit. But if you wish to hike there are so many ranging from easy to hard. I didn’t get to finish the park and plan on visiting again to finish. Each trail is different from rock formations and levels. Bring water with you and snacks. I plan on going back!

Great spot to hike
Jul 2021
Beautiful place to visit and hike. The loop will take at least an hour to drive. We've found best hikes are those you can reach from main roads since loop take so long to travel for the days you want a quick hike vs. half day adventure.

Fantastic tour to take while in Vegas!
Oct 2021
We took the morning tour, on a beautiful day, and were back on the Strip in time for lunch. Fantastic scenery, great driver and tour guide - TJ, and what a wonderfully beautiful place to see! TJ was very knowledgeable and funny, and a great time was had by everyone in our tour bus. Loved it!

Great "touristy" place to visit!
Jul 2021
There is a 13-mile area to drive through. You have to pay, but it was well worth it. Beautiful areas for pictures, too.
