The Hagen Trail at Red Rock Canyon State Park travels past red-stained sandstone curtains, rock windows, and desert cliffs. Well over 100 movies have been filmed in Red Rock Canyon State Park, including westerns such as "Zorro Rides Again", "The Big Country", and "Law and Order" starring Ronald Reagan, as well as other hits such as "The Ten Commandments", "Jurassic Park", and "Beneath the Planet of the Apes". Although the main trail is only 1.1 miles long (with a 0.1 mile side trail to a bench), it is possible to spend several hours in this area exploring red cliffs, washes, and side canyons just off the main trail. Off-trail exploration is allowed, as many of the points of interest are several hundred feet off the trail. Be sure to be careful off trail, especially on uneven ground, as much of the rock is sandy, weak, and can easily crumble if weighted.

Great! Even if it’s hot in the late afternoon you can find some shade.

Very hot in the summer and barely any shade but very pretty rocks. Lots of loose sand which can be slippery.

This is a short very easy loop hike.  Like some of the other trails here it shows it's just a short loop but some other trail intersects with it so make sure you look at the trail map before departing so you don't end up on a longer trail.  It was an okay trail, but nothing you couldn't see from the parking lot.

Was a stop off to have a look around; very accessible and plenty to see/take photos of. worrh doing the red cliff trail on the other side of the road at the same time if you are in the area.

Some really cool formations off small spurs of the trail, interesting area of the desert to walk around in. Absolutely no shade, so beware in summer months.
