Red Rock Canyon was designated as Nevada's first National Conservation Area. Red Rock Canyon is located 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip on Charleston Boulevard/State Route 159. The area is 195,819 acres and is visited by more than one million people each year. In marked contrast to a town geared to entertainment and gaming, Red Rock offers enticements of a different nature including a 13-mile scenic drive, more than 30 miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking, road biking, picnic areas, nature observing and visitor center with exhibit rooms and a book store. The unique geologic features, plants and animals of Red Rock represent some of the best examples of the Mojave Desert. In 1990, special legislation supported by the Nevada congressional delegation, changed the status of the Red Rock Recreation Lands to a National Conservation Area (NCA), the seventh to be designated nationally. This legislation provides the funding to protect and improve the area. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is enjoyed by the local population as well as visitors from the United States and many foreign countries. One million visitors each year enjoy the spectacular desert landscape, climbing and hiking opportunities, and interpretive programs sponsored by the BLM. The BLM is the largest administrator of public lands in the West. It adheres to the policy of multiple use, thereby providing recreational opportunities, protection for cultural sites, and the management of natural resources, including wildlife.

This is a nice short trail. More scrambling than I like (bad knees). No water at the end this time of year, still worth the trip.

Great hike, although this a loop hike there are 4 different ways to the hike. The map shows how to go up and over the mountain but there are ways to go around the mountain.

Great hike, but the climb after the first mile is harsh, didn't expect that. Was more climbing than hiking, but a lot of fun. Afterwards a nice walk, with great views.

We went around it going in a counterclockwise way. It was pretty easy most of the way with a little bit of scrambling. The part where you go over the hill was not too bad. Excellent views and amazing rock formations.

Fun trail. A little busy since there are 3 trailheads that enter this trail at different points. You’re hiking 6 miles but others can jump on the trail for much shorter sections so you don’t really get away from the crowds for long.

Cactus up the Ying Yang

Kind of seemed to miss the best views, but a very pleasant trail with a lot of ups and downs.

It was nice seeing the mountains in the background and the different plant life. The scenery is roughly the same throughout the whole trail.

the moderate rating is generous - while 2/3 of the loop trail is easily marked and perfect for those semi-amateur hikes at one point there was ZERO marked path and a very difficult rock scramble. Beware! All in all it was super fun and would have been more fun if we knew exactly what to expect with the scramble. Nice temps for a mid Nov hike

Well marked paths... red and white spray paint to the top of the saddle provided a safe route... top of saddle around the back of turtle head I followed the green spray paint to the top! The green route often crossed paths with red/white. Some scrambling about 950 ft up from the trailhead. Paths were well worn and noticeable. Beautiful views at the top! Be sure to bring some paper or a pic or something to leave in the ammo box, there’s a tube attached to it as well, lots of pens and even a lighter for those that indulge. Stay safe and keep putting one foot in front of the other!! Happy trails!

Great little trail for something light in mileage but that will still get the heart pumping. Cool views along the way. The road definitely doesn't require high clearance as I made it in my Camry.

We hiked this trail on Veterans Day and turns out really good. It is easy at the beginning but the preteen kids get bored. But after we get deeper, my daughter find some giant rocks to climb then she feel happy about that. We followed the instructions and turn right at the first tree and find the no water waterfall only a pond there this season. We will be back to see the waterfall on Spring season for sure.

Nice little hike-run with a great view at the end. Recommend going to the right at the end, gives you a really high vantage point! Just be careful! Have fun!
