Close to Las Vegas - amazing rock formations, plant life, wildlife. Avoid the turtles $50k fine for violating the 10 feet away rule, as they are endangered. Bring plenty of water - even in October it gets hot and you will need to stay hydrated....More

This was my first experience to Red Rock Canyon. My wife and I had a fantastic hike. It is well preserved and the visitor center has a modern feel.

Really enjoyed my hiking trip here. It was nice to take a break from the insanity of Vegas to surround yourself by nature for a day.

This is a gorgeous park and well worth the short drive from Las Vegas. The colors are stunning, especially at sunrise. The park is well maintained with paved roads for a driving tour and paths for hiking. Restrooms and picnic areas are easy to find....More

I would suggest going by one of the touring buses. They make all the main stops and stress free and you get to meet people along with all the historic information that most people miss

Not technically, but if you park outside and walk in, there's not much to stop you. I wouldn't recommend walking around at night though, that's dangerous. I might suggest visiting Calico Basin, it's essentially the front of... More
