One of the best hidden gems in the Las Vegas area is the Red Rock Canyon known for its natural beauty, rock formations and the vivid colors of the rocks.   Similar to the creation of the Grand Canyon, forces of nature have taken years to create and form the visual masterpiece that is now known as Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

Red Rock Canyon is located about 25 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip. The main access route from downtown or Las Vegas Boulevard is Charleston Boulevard, which will turn into SR 159. Or from the south, take Blue Diamond Rd/SR 160 west to the Junction with Route 159. Follow SR 159 until you see the entrance signs.

Enjoy your unique adventure!
