Red Rock Canyon Trails  Map

Seven of us set out on our first hike of the season. We were a little concerned about a seven mile trek as our first outing, but the trail proved to be beautiful and not overly taxing. It was the type of trail that makes you want to come back for more.

The layered colors were amazing. So distinct. The landscape ranged from soft, rolling hills to jagged peaks, which were as sharp as lava rock. The winds were wicked, but interestingly always at our back.

Our group (age range 45 to 60) really loved this trail.

Peaceful walk, so peaceful that even our kids felt like they had to talk quietly. We went on a Sunday about noon in March, and there were very few people on the way. This walking/running/biking path is in a very nice housing development. The are small playgrounds along the path.

Really fun hike, some rock scrambling and great views at the end!

Did Ice Box Canyon with my 21 y/o son. I'm 61 y/o. The guide given out at the visitors center rated this as a strenuous hike and AllTrails has it listed as moderate. It is not moderate at all. Very beautiful. After reaching the end and returning down we wandered to the right of the trail and ended up in a ravine. We needed to scale the wall of rocks to return to the trail. I'm very happy that I was able to complete this trail as most of my hiking is in Ohio. My right knee reminded me that this was a tough one.

We really enjoyed this challenging hike today. We turned around about 3/4 of the way to the waterfall at the end due to the increased difficulty of the bouldering. We had seen so much beauty already that we were full and didn’t need to press on. The little pools of water and stream along with endless beautiful rocks of all colors and patterns and the diversity of the plant life made this hike one of our favorites so far.
When you are on the trail, you will come to a big rock triangle in the dirt and there are three ways to go. This is where we went left to the riverbed and then took a right at the riverbed and followed it out and back for the reminder of the hike. This will take you to the pools of water. Be careful coming back. We almost missed the left out of the riverbed to get back onto the main trail.

Lots of scrambling over boulders but most obstacles had a way around them. It was cold and windy wear layers. Beautiful area.

Some bouldering. Hard to follow at times. Beautiful country and spectacular view of Las Vegas at the end.

The mountains besides the trail are so beautiful. I am sorry I didn't hike the whole trail.

More of a Nice easy walk more than a hike. I am new to hiking and this was effortless for me. Great way to enjoy nature without needing to put in a lot of physical strength.

There are many sandstones and red rocks with various shapes along the trail. You can see the whole Las Vegas at the top.

It’s definitely not 5 miles. To the end of the trail was maybe a mile and a half out if that. The sign even says 2.4 round trip. It’s pretty but March 10th we saw a trickle and a small pond.

Very scenic. Some scrambling over big rocks. At times hard to determine where the trail is but you can’t really get lost. Great view of Vegas at the end. Wear good hiking shoes for gripping the rocks.

very beautiful, and beautiful sight seeing area and it is not hard at all

nice trail to hike with the family. there are many routes that will eventually get you to the same place! my 4 yr old and dog both enjoyed themselves!

Southern Cali girl here. I recently got back into hiking and have tried to look for a nearby trail anywhere I go. My boyfriend has family in the Vegas area so I was excited to learn of the many wonders surrounding us here. This is one of many trails in the park. It was fun to get lost in the canyon, climb rocks and play with snow. I'm glad we started early because it wasn't crowded and we got to appreciate the creek and ponds practically to ourselves. will return!

Very beautiful trail. The spring was disappointing.

Love the scenery. Only problem I had with the trail was there were so many forks and it was hard to make out where the trail actually went and ended. Lots of dead ends. Ended up traveling back and going to two different creek split-offs. Also the map on this app is much longer than what is traveled upon by walked trails. Pick your own adventure, I guess!

This was a wonderful side trip away from the Vegas Strip. The temperature was perfect for a nice hike in late January. Easy parking and access to the trail. Definitely wear some good, non-slip hiking shoes. Part of the trail is very sandy and the other part you'll do some light rock scrambling. My shoes became slippery from the sand and while walking on the rocks I slipped and landed on my caboose which resulted in a very colorful bruise.

Such a nice trail! Very easy and very flat with the smallest amount of climbing at the end. The pond was cool to see, too.
