Travel 17 miles west of the neon canyons of Las Vegas and you’ll find the red sandstone formations of the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Visited by more than a million people each year, this 195,819 acre area is controlled by the Bureau of Land Management. The canyon walls reach up to 3,000’ high, making the area popular for both hikers and rock climbers. A 13 mile one-way loop road, with a visitors’ center at its start, passes by many of the features of the canyon. Side roads and parking areas allow access to trails.
