The next time you are in Las Vegas, Nevada take time out to visit Red Rock Canyon. Just 17 miles away, it is a quick drive to the canyon, and you will get to see some great sites. We visited the canyon in July 2006 and really enjoyed the scenery. There are lots of things to do including hiking, rock climbing and horseback riding. If you want to see the opposite of man made mountains in Las Vegas, check out the Red Rock Canyon and see what the Mojave Desert has to offer.
The scenic loop is open every day of the year with times changing slightly according to the season. It features a one-way 13-mile scenic drive.
