Red Rock Canyon is just two and half hour drive from Vegas. There is a 13 miles scenic drive through the red rock national conservation area. You will find various view points as well as numerous hiking trails on the way. There are parking spaces at the entrance of most of the hiking trails. Stop at the viewpoints, read about it on the info boards placed there and enjoy the beauty of Red Rock Canyon.
Red Rock canyons were actually sand dunes! Yes, read it for yourself there. You will be amazed.
I personally loved being there, hiking to the top of the canyon and clicking pics.It was a sunny day. we sat on the top for a while. I am sharing pics from my recent visit to Red Rock Canyon.
