Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area are a series of canyons noted for their sandstone peaks and steep rock walls. The rugged rock formations rise up to 910 m (3,000 ft), making them a popular hiking and rock-climbing destination. You can explore most of this area via the 21 km (13 mi) one-way loop road, from which you can access numerous parking areas, picnic zones, and hiking and mountain-biking trails. Begin with a stop at the visitor center at the start of the loop road. Keep in mind that the trails usually start with an easy to moderate climb and become increasingly difficult as you progress to the top.

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area reviews
Ok. So yes, it's pretty for about 2 miles, then some panoramic views of the valley. We love nature, we love BLM lands, we love trail hiking, etc....and have done a ton of it all over the country... more »
It was amazingly beautiful. 13 miles of scenery. I was hopeful that we would see horses as they had signs stating to be careful but didn’t. Definitely worth the drive and 17 dollars. We spent roughly.... more »
Red Rock, a true gem and a visual landmark that creates the real feel of the Vegas Valley. World renowned for rock climbing and also a really great place to take a motorcycle or bike ride through. If you are in the area and enjoy the outdoors this place provides all the scenic eye candy you’ll need. If you are on the opposite end of the valley, Red Rock provides a great backdrop for watching the sun go down behind Mt. Charleston. Enjoy the many things you can do out there - hiking, a family picnic or a scenic drive. A great place to visit.
Absolutely a perfect place for a peaceful hike or rock climb. The trails are well groomed and patrons have definitely respected the "no litter" rules. I wish I had take a long sleeve jacket because the mountain air was quite brisk, but the sun was warm enough to overcome the annoyance of the cool air. The desert scenery and the amazing rock formations along with the colors of the landscape made it a perfect morning adventure. I am not a huge hiker but this place is a "must" for anyone who is an outdoors enthusiast on a trip to Vegas. The people who are fortunate enough to have their estates situated in the ravines are truly blessed. Brilliant stewardship. I cannot wait to return and explore more trails, and dedicate several days to that part of Vegas. The Red Rock Canyon Resort and Spa will likely be the next place I stay at when in Vegas.
