Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area - Review
The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area situated in Nevada is a preserved range operated by the Bureau of Land Management, as a major aspect of its National Landscape Conservation System. It is secured as a National Conservation Area, and is found around the range of 15 miles to the west of Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Strip provides a grand panoramic view of the Red Rock Canyon. The range of Red Rock Canyon trails is visited by an excess of 1 million guests every year. The protected range showcases a set of substantial red rock creations, mainly featuring a set of sandstone crests and dividers worldwide named as the Keystone Thrust. The dividers reach a height of 3,000 feet or 910 metres, making them a mainstream trekking and rock climbing terminus. The most elevated focus is the La Madre Mountain, situated at a height of 2,485 m. A restricted circular street, spreading 21 km around the canyon, furnishes vehicle access to a large number of the characteristic zones in the territory.

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Las Vegas Reviews
This place is absolutely beautiful and surprisingly close to Las Vegas. I drove the scenic loop versus hiking since a) it was 110 degrees and b) solo female traveller (don't feel comfy hiking anywhere solo-especially when I am not familiar with the area). The drive was gorgeous and I stopped at about 3/4 of the scenic lookouts. The visitors centre is great with lots of things to see. The gift shop isn't crazy expensive either. $15 US to get in to Red Rock Canyon conservation area. Well worth it. I went on a Saturday in august and it was quiet enough to always find lots of space to park at each lookout.
It was a great park. They have a paved road you can drive all the way through and park in parking lot near the hiking trails. So you can hike at your convenience me and my wife are not avid hikers but we enjoy nature and with being in the desert it was over 100degrees the day so it was nice to be able to ride in an air conditioned car we we got too hot to hike. It was beautiful park. And definitely worth a visit
This park is not too big, but the rock inside are awesome! The colors are incredible. I really recommend to visit this park. They have different places to observe the amazing Panorama and bathrooms in every place. Also you can enjoy the trail of hiking. The street is smooth and easy way by car.
Vegas has perfect places to visit for family vacations! Red Rock is a gorgeous, relaxing area. Bonny Springs Ranch in the Red Rocks is a must stop! Really excellent food in their authentic restaurant, large petting zoo with lots of animals walking FREE, a very real copy of a western town with live performances in the streets. Weekend train rides for kiddies is an added special treat. I'm an adult but felt like a kid again!
With miles of trails through desert landscape Red Rock Canyon is one of Las Vegas’ top places to visit! Rock climbing, hiking, picnicking, exploring.....great for bird watching especially near Lost Creek. I only wish all those that visited were more respectful to nature. If you’re a conscientious nature lover, do pitch in and bring an empty garbage bag to clean up after your fellow litterbug. Better yet just don’t leave your trash behind.
