"Really Red Rock!" Red Rock Canyon Tip by lohki
Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas: 63 reviews and 97 photos
** Don't let the blue sunny sky fool you in these photos... it was actually VERY cold **
Depending on how long you are in town, Red Rock Canyon is a great way to actually see what the Nevada landscape is like, minus all the neon and fake lakes of the strip. A good day trip or even half day trip. I like to go early in the day to avoid the crowds and in the summer, the heat.
It is really easy to get to (with a car) and it shouldn't take longer than 30 minutes in travel time. Even if you don't plan to tackle any of the hikes in the park, the 13 mile senic drive that circles the area will give you an idea of Canyon's geological mysteries... such as the secret waters called tinajas and the "Keystone Thrust Fault."
From Las Vegas the Conservation Area can be approached from Charleston Boulevard [north of Sahara Avenue], which will turn into State Route 159
