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
Absolutely stunning! The colors, the incredible landscape, and the beauty all around had us in awe if this beautiful desert landscape. So glad we were able to do the Keystone Thrust Hike! Perfect length and challenge for our family with stunning views. The trail was well maintained and easy to follow. Our only difficulty was finding parking. There is insufficient parking for some of the more popular hikes, with signs everywhere saying that one will be fined if they park outside of the designated areas. Also, be aware of the $15/vehicle entry fee.
You might get told this is an excellent place to take your exotic car for a drive but that's only true if you don't get stuck behind some dude doing 30. It is an absolutely beautiful place and i will going again, just not in a Lamborghini. It was $15 for a 30 minute drive and it wasn't until the end that i realized i could pass the shower cars... In a responsible way of course.
Best part of going to Vegas. The scenic drive is about 13 miles and there are stops off of that. The first stop.is by far the most fun! You can climb on a lot of the rocks and explore little hidden areas. I wish I knew this ahead of time because we decided to save our energy since we had 12 more miles ahead of us, but we could've spent the whole day just at the first stop. Rest of the stops are nice, but more for hiking trails. That first stop is like a playground.
One of my favorite places to hike! Definitely don't go alone but this place is a must if you're going to visit Vegas and you want to see more of the nature side of this valley. So closeto the city also. About 10 min West of Red Rock Casino. If you don't want to pay to drive into the scenic loop then there is always Calico Basin to park at. Many, many places to explore around this area. Always and adventure with beautiful desert scenery. If you aren't really into the desert setting, this place will change most people's minds. A must go!!
Sooo fun to climb around and be a kid again. You can rock climb or just hop around on rocks as you climb up higher. The various shades of red are gorgeous. Pack a lunch because there is no food in the visitor center and only vending machines. Plus it's nice to eat your food while looking over a nice view of the canyons. Parking gets packed sometimes. Fun for the whole family though. Very enjoyable.
