Went on a six mile run at Red Rock to escape the "downtown" during our stay in Vegas! Red Rocks is really a unique spot! Having stayed in Vegas before, this was my first time seeing the canyon and it was really an experience. You...More

We needed a quick tour to see the highlights and the local park has developed a great park for just that. Perfect for a little taste of an amazing site.

We were there early to avoid the heat of the day. The sun was not good for bringing out the colors in the rocks. Some nice hikes, but the high temp was 120, so we did not hike.

If you are in Vegas you definitely need to take a side trip to Red Rock Canyon. It is only about a 30 minute drive but seems like another world. Due to high heat we were not able to do any long hikes. Thankfully you...More

There were parts closed off while works are going on but this still leaves plenty of places to stop and explore. The rock formations and colours are amazing and you can walk easy or more difficult paths depending on your capability. Take plenty of water

I didn't expect to see great views from this park at the beginning; however, when we visited it, my whole family enjoyed its natural beauty and great mountains. Actually we wish that we could plan a little more time (around 4-5 hours) to explore all...More

I have 7 days to travel from Las Vegas to LA to San Diego and back. I'm trying to decide if this is a must see within that time frame. I will be flying into Vegas this June 25 and flying out July 2nd. I know it's about 4 hours to LA and I'm wondering if I can fit a tour of Red Rock or the Grand Canyon in on the way to or from SAn Diego. Any advise or input would help. Thanks

From Red Rock Canyon, I almost drove the 45 minutes to the California border just to say I had. If you're making that drive already, Red Rock is a quick, easy diversion if you stay in the car and only drive the 13-mile... More

There is a fee to get into the area that contains the visitor's center and the loop. It is a national conservatory so it is maintained and that is what the fee is for. I think it was $7 for the car and it passengers. Well... More
