Quite a fun ride. A good friend of mine took me to Red Rock for a date, and we hiked the Calico Tanks there (also pretty awesome). We also checked out the visitor's center and drove on this road (I believe) on our way out. It's definitely a fun road to drive on, especially if you have a learner's permit wanting to learn how to drive on a curvy road with some moderate traffic. I suggest you take a date to check out the resort really sometime and drove along this road on your way out after doing one or more hikes. It was certainly fun for me!

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.

I have driven this route a couple of times, and hiked around the area. Each time hoping to see some wild burros, or luck, but still a nice trail near Vegas. Who knew?
