You can see it from the Las Vegas Strip (if you’ve got a hotel room facing west and above the parking garages), Red Rock Canyon stands glowing in the horizon.
This massive conservation area is home to some of the best rock climbing in the States, as well as breathtaking hikes and more.
Hop on a half-day guided tour that passes along the 13-mile scenic loop and then on an off-road adventure. Stops include the visitors center, 65-million-year-old Wilson Cliffs (a part of the Keystone Thrust), pictographs from Native Americans, and more.
