Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area


This is a beautiful area in which to experience the natural wonders of the Mohave Desert. The red- and cream-colored sandstone cliffs are awesome. Scramble across fossilized sand dunes, explore the recesses between the rocks, climb sheer rock walls, or just enjoy the scenic beauty along the road. Rock climbers dot the cliffs in this world-class climbing area. This area also features a 13-mile paved, scenic loop drive, visitor center, and day-use area.


From Las Vegas, travel west on Charleston Boulevard, which will become State Highway 159, to the Red Rock Canyon entrance.
