"" Nevada Favorite Tip by Krystynn

Nevada General: 75 reviews and 57 photos

 
 

Fondest memory: Back to <b><font color=blue>Red Rock Canyon National Park</b></font>....

One activity that I'd be more than happy to recommend is that you go on a <b>13-mile loop drive</b> through the preserve. The paved, one-way road begins just next to the Visitor Center and heads along the Calico Hills..... Here, you can catch great vistas of the crossed-bedded Aztec sandstone.

There are short trails to the Rock face from each of the vista points. A good place to stop and walk to the base of the sandstone is at the <b>Sandstone Quarry car park lot</b>. From there, you can marvel at the huge blocks of stone which also provides some form of evidence of the extensive quarrying works that took place in the early-1900s.

Oh, and <i>don't forget to bring lots of film</i>!
