Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

Las Vegas, Nevada

Nevada's first national conservation area, Red Rock Canyon is located just 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip. A natural escape from the glitzy chaos of town, it offers moments of tranquility in the form of a 13-mile scenic drive and 30 miles of hiking trails. Adrenaline junkies will revel in the rock-climbing opportunities, while those hoping to explore the land can saddle up for a horseback tour. Visited by more than 1 million people a year, this ethereal desert landscape is the perfect place to decompress and reconnect with nature.
