Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Las Vegas Reviews
The best work out to get with family, friends, co-workers, or alone. I recommend rock climbing with a partner or as a group. It was a beautiful day, the weekend the government was shut down. I gotta chance to take in the scenery and breathe in fresh air. I meditated and just thanked my Creator for my family and the view. The nicest people you'll ever meet in Las Vegas are those in nature. I wonder why that is? If you live in Las Vegas, take a break from the city life, the adult life, the go to work and pay your bills life, and the it's always busy life. Visit Red Rock and gain some perspective on what's next in life. It's one of many amazing free landmarks that make NV so beautiful.
Words cannot always describe the beauty of nature and the colorful and Majestic geography of the Red Rock National Conservancy right outside Las Vegas Nevada. It was my first visit on a beautiful sunny yet cool and breezy day. I am amazed at how beautiful everything was and how delicately Nature has balanced herself in the Rocks the vegetation and the rest of the landscape. Although I did not see any Wildlife I know they're still there but maybe not ready to come right out since it's not warm enough. Take your family to see This Magnificent place you will not regret it. There are many wonderful hiking trails will you can be one on one with nature and very up close and personal
A wonderful park, especially so close to an urban area. The views were beautiful and there are many wonderful trails to explore. Be sure to go on a day with good weather. My biggest qualm was the entrance fee, which was steep for our short visit. For longer visits it's still a great value. I was also disappointed by the amount of trash/litter I found in the park, despite the ubiquity of trash cans and facilities.
Gorgeous views and a lovely drive. The park has plenty of different options for everyone from the casual to the rock climber. The park itself is a large loop along the scenic road. The road is one-way and windy so there is no opportunity to turn around. The main trails all have a parking lot, bathroom and are clearly marked along the road. I recommend bringing a lot of water and a pair of sturdy shoes if you plan on hiking any of the longer and more technical trails. 😁
Definitely check this place out. Beautiful red rocks which make great pictures opportunities. Paths that you can walk. It does get crowded so be prepared. It's a loop and you can stop at different stops along the way. Bathrooms are basically outhouses but they are clean which is nice. Make sure you bring water with you. There is a fee to brig your car in but it's not too much.
