Red Rock Canyon - user review
Even if you aren't a hiker, the drive to and around Red Rock Canyon is a must. Especially if you've spent six days inside a casino without seeing sunlight. Granted, we were there in January so the temperatures were quite lovely, but I am looking forward to going back and exploring more. I'll let my ...

It's one of the prettiest places I've ever seen. You drive through the canyon countryside, stopping at all the great photo-opp places and hiking places.

Red Rock Canyon - Introduction - expert review
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is the antithesis to the frantic, gambling-driven pace of Las Vegas. Located a short 17 mile drive to the west of the Las Vegas strip, Red Rock Canyon is peaceful and serene, with Navajo Sandstone walls jutting from the Mojave Desert floor.Red Rock Canyon o...

Red Rock Canyon is a stunningly beautiful desert canyon only 20 minutes from Las Vegas. A scenic loop winds among imposing, rust-red, sandstone towers. There is a visitor center, as well as hiking trails and picnic areas. With little effort, you can walk to popular rock-climbing sites and watch the ...

Red Rock Canyon! - user review
It is such a short drive from the strip and yet you feel like you are a million miles away from everything. Should you be seeking piece of mind or a breathtaking bit o...

Red Rock Canyon - user review
The park has an information center at the entrance, even if you are just going to drive the loop, be sure to stop. The exhibits show you the type of wild life to be looking for on your drive, along with warnings regarding hiking, guides to the petroglyphs, historic information, park information, and...

Not quite VOF, but still very nice! - user review
We visited Red Rocks in May, and although it is an amazing place, I still would recommend the drive out to Valley of Fire over Red Rocks. My husband liked Red Rocks better because...

Hiking Red Rocks Canyon - user review
Red and orange rock rise from the desert basin. There are hikes from 25 minutes to several hours. There are numerous trails that highlight various terrains. Horseback riding is available, as is rock rappeling. Plantlife covers the desert with cactus, tiny wildflowers, and birds. Waterfalls are visib...

Hiking Ice Box Canyon - user review
This hike was beautiful. It started out easy (a flat trail leading to the canyon) but as we hiked deeper into the canyon it became more difficult (and much more interesting). The rocks were were walking on gradually became bigger and bigger until we were scaling up boulders. This hike isn't for the ...

When the casinos have lost their attraction, it's time to head out and see some of the local sites. Red Rock Canyon is a few miles north taking Highway 95. It's a perfect day trip during your visit. Remember this is true desert. Take along some bottled water as the signs at the entry suggest. The ro...

Hiking Red Rocks Canyon - user review
Red Rocks National Park was absolutely breathtaking. These canyons were very cool and unlike anything I had ever seen before. It is also as opposite as the city of Las Vegas as you can get (uncrowded, all nature, nothing man-made, authentic). It is located about 15 miles from the heart of town and i...

Red Rock Canyon - user review
Red Rock Canyon's genesis occurred about 65 million years ago. You can reach this place easily by car; it's about a 45 minute drive from downtown Las Vegas. We rented a convertible, which was an awesome idea as it provided some relief from the overwhelming heat. There are also tour operators who mak...

Tired of gambling ? a nice get away - user review
The beauty is wonderful but bring some tenis shoes you will want to explor a bit. Seeing the wild donkeys and exploring the canyon is a great break from the life on the strip...

The Grand Canyon & Sedona - user review
Plan to spend at least a full day at the Grand Canyon, as around every turn, the view changes, with each one being more breathtaking than the last. If you can arrive early in the day (or stay till near dusk), you will see the amazing color changes as the sun moves over the rocks. Many viewpoints, ea...

Great place to hike!! - user review
Unfortunately, for long-time locals like us, were a little bit disappointed that the park is now fee-based. And be guaranteed to find crowds on weekends! Nice place to ride S...

Red Rock Canyon Las Vegas Nevada : photos, trail map, trail information, directions
is a narrow valley that is located about 15 miles west of downtown Las Vegas. This is one of the most scenic places to visit in the Southern Nevada area. Just 'Red Rock' as it is known to the locals in Las Vegas, gets its name from the red colored sandstone formations found on the west and northern ...

You will enjoy taking a 13-mile loop drive through the preserve. The paved, one-way road begins next to the visitor center and heads along the Calico Hills, with two pulloffs offering vistas of the crossed-bedded Aztec sandstone. There are short trails to the rock face from each of the vista points....
