Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area are a series of canyons noted for their sandstone peaks and steep rock walls. The rugged rock formations rise up to 910 m (3,000 ft), making them a popular hiking and rock-climbing destination. You can explore most of this area via the 21 km (13 mi) one-way loop road, from which you can access numerous parking areas, picnic zones, and hiking and mountain-biking trails. Begin with a stop at the visitor center at the start of the loop road. Keep in mind that the trails usually start with an easy to moderate climb and become increasingly difficult as you progress to the top.

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area Reviews
We enjoyed a tour through this national conservation area made easier via scooter -- comfortable, efficient, and well worth the experience. more »
its only a two hour drive from vegas to the west rim where you get fantastic views, the sky walk and eagle rock!! nowhere good to eat here so bring a snack or eat before your drive. more »
Awesome hike up the ice box. Navigating the boulders is a lot of fun. Keep going till you get to the end. You'll know when your there as there's no where else to go. Once you reach the base of the waterfall you can climb the steep rocks to the left then cross over to the right side, climb some more then hop back to the left side to view a large pool of water and feel some spray from the waterfall. That last bit is not for the faint of heart but well worth the effort. My son went one step further and took a dip in the icy cold water. What a great adventure!
Beautiful and that is not even saying enough. The mountains/ valleys to see here are amazing and very much something everyone should go see. It's not that expensive to get in somewhere around $15 dollars a car I believe, maybe $20. Other than that it will take you a good 4+ hours to see everything if you climb around or do some trail hiking. It's very fun and a beautiful place to see highly recommended
