One of the trails in Las Vegas, open all year to all skill level.
We parked on the road to avoid paying to get in. Didnt realize it was a scenic drive. But we found a cool trail on foot in a canyon.
Amazing options for climbing and hiking. You can challenge your climbing skills big time up the red rock mountains or just hike on the paths and in the washes. Great intermediate climbing to be challenging but not where you need ropes...but I did see some peels doing that up the face of a coupe mountains. Down sides if you want to call them that is poorly marked with a few ambitious signs and you have to go all the way around since it's one big one way through the park and of course there is always some dude in a Prius doing 15 mph the whole way so it takes a half hour to get out.
Great trip for families and people that prefer to have easy trails to walk. great views to capture.
Just love the area. Hiking and exploring away from the city. Great place to relax
I have driven this route a couple of times, and hiked around the area. Each time hoping to see some wild burros, or horses......no luck, but still a nice trail near Vegas. Who knew?
This is a road, not a trail. Also the only allowable camping is at the Campground, not on the scenic drive. Campground is located 3 miles from the visitor center on SR159.
Ton of great hikes off the loop rode.
drive slow and enjoy
