Red Rock Canyon - where to start???

It feels overwhelming looking at the different trails available. We are going for one day in December. Our fitness levels are good (we're not running marathons but a 3 mile run is doable. We're happy to do a mix or running/walking and will be driving from Las Vegas to get there.

Can anyone recommend a combination of trails to do, please?

I guess I said we'll be driving there so people knew we had access to a car whilst there. Not sure what the initial response said, obviously wasn't kind/useful.

There are often (free) guided walks around the park. I went on one with a geology theme which was interesting, plus it snowed!

I live near Red Rock and go there weekly. I recommend hiking up Pine or Oak Creek Canyons. Both are nice and you just keep going up the wash until you feel like turning around. Ice Box Canyon is the most popular trail I'd say and is nice, but short. Red Rock is overrun with people now a days, so go early

The first response was both kind and useful in my opinion. It was basically a longer version of post #3. I was surprised it was deleted.

I didn't see the first one but assumed it must have been bad to have been deleted. Now I see another few posts have been deleted too, none of which there was anything wrong with....what on earth is happening?

A lot of posts get deleted on this forum. I don't know why.
