  • Nice and reasonably short drive from Vegas. Have to make reservations online or will be turned away. Our reservation was for 12N but got there early and was allowed in. Is a loop with various trail...  more »
  • My second time here and it was as good as the first time--we went early around 9am and the lighting was excellent. Not much traffic and the views are fantastic. Did not see any chuckwallas or burros.....  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.
