Welcoming more than two million visitors each year, the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is Southern Nevada’s premier outdoors destination.
Accessible by a half hour drive west of the Strip, Red Rock Canyon stands comfortably as the most renowned scenic attraction in the Las Vegas area.
Noted for its reddish sandstone rock formations, known collectively as the Keystone Thrust, that scale up to 3000 feet, Red Rock offers a variety of options for exploring the canyon’s natural splendor and wildlife.
Thousands of species of plant, animal, and insect life populate the area, including Mojave yucca, Joshua tree, gray foxes, white-crowned sparrows, mule deer, wild burros, rabbits, red-spotted toads, desert tortoises, and Desert big horn sheep.
Geologically, Red Rock Canyon bears complexity as well, with its grand red walls and peaks serving as evidence of the millions of years that saw the land develop from Paleozoic Era ocean basin to modern desert.
In addition to its dozens of hiking trails showcasing every region of the canyon, the site accommodates recreational activities such as biking, rock climbing, horseback riding, camping, and picnic areas and features more than a few wonderful spots for photography.
With support from the Southern Nevada Conservancy, the preserve also offers informative guided tours and educational workshops at its facilities for all ages; Red Rock’s official mascot, the desert tortoise Mojave Max, is even available for viewing upon entering the Visitor Center.
