It's a short ride outside of the strip. Make sure you have water and gas in the car because there's nothing on the way there. It's definitely worth seeing - the formations and the colors especially when the sun is going down is breathtaking.

It was nice to get away from the glitz of Vegas to ride through the canyon on horseback. We had a small group and a nice guide. Riding along the cliffs made us a bit nervous but the horses plodded along in a line. I'm sure they've done the same route a million times. The rocks looked pretty but after awhile it all looked about the same. We rode probably an 1.5 hours or so and that really seemed long enough. There really isn't much to look at but rock and desert. We always try to do something different each time we go and it was ok to try once but won't do it again.

Get out of Vegas and see some truly beautiful things! Take the Red Rock Canon tour with Tom. This is a must do!

We usually don't venture off The Strip when in Vegas but so glad we did this time! Breathtakingly beautiful drive through the Mojave Desert. It is very hot and dry so bring plenty of water. We stopped many places along the way just to get out and walk a bit or for photo ops, Don't miss this! Such a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of The Strip.

Beautiful area,and close to Vegas.
If the gates weren't shut by our lovely Federal government we would have been giving it 5 stars,but not being able to hike in the park makes that difficult!
