Red Rock Canyon

Red Rock Canyon, just 15 miles west of Las Vegas, offers awe-inspiring views you wouldn't expect to see near a major city. In contrast to the bright lights and hype of the Strip, Red Rock offers desert beauty, towering red cliffs and abundant wildlife. Families can hike, picnic and view plant and animal life under 3,000-foot-high red rock formations.
