Drive the Red Rock Canyon Scenic Loop Reviews

Fun drive with lots of potentials for pull offs and some nice day hikes. The visitor center was informative and a good place to start like the description says. Nice views all around! Fun to look at all the rocks and look for climbers!

This is an amazing place outside the light of Vegas. Lots of pull offs, picnic areas, back country trails, and easy day hikes. The desert tortoises that life here are an added treat, they avoid the heat of the day though so take a later drive in the day or first light.
